Recipe by tuttifrutti1

A recipe I got from a co worker. Scrumptious. She substituted butter for shortening in the recipe and it was divine.

Great recipe! Recipe doesn't say exactly how long to cook the filling, so I was a bit unsure....so it cooked and cooked on a low setting...about 12 minutes until it was a nice jammy consistency. It stayed quite watery for a while, so glad I was patient. Butter is the way to go! I baked it only about 29 minutes, it seemed to brown very fast (probably from the butter) - so keep an eye on it!
