09-23-12: Update! I made this again, this time pinching the strips together as I folded them over. It came out perfect this time. I also folded up the ends before 'braiding' and this kept everything inside the pastry! LOL. A great recipe using blueberry preserves.
12-26-10: This was quite delicious, but I had problems with the construction...My braids came undone during the first 10 minutes of baking, so about 1/4 of the cheese and preserves oozed out all over the baking pan. It made a huge mess, but I just let it bake. Once it was done, I let it cool and we taste-tested - DELICIOUS. Next time I make this I will definitely pinch the braids together - hopefully, they will hold together. This was easy to make and I used blueberry preserves, which turned out to be a delicious combination. Thanks for posting diner - made for Phototag.
