This was good. But I had a problem with the sheets breaking. But I managed to get one that was good for photo. I used a raspberry & apple filling

I made this recipe for the April 09 Aussie/Kiwi Swap. I made this with peaches, a cinnamon stick and brown suga. It must be me - I used more than one sheet, and it just wasn't "strong" enough for the fruit. But it was SO tasty. I will keep trying.
