My aunt had her caterer make this one year for Thanksgiving... and I just had to track down the recipe. I tried this one and it got really good reviews at a potluck at work. Next time, I think I might try adding some kind of nut to the outside of the ring for another textural element/contrast. Fantastic overall though.

I've had this many times, only strawberry preserves were used instead of raspberry. It is probably even BETTER with the raspberry. This is a great party spread, sweet and savory at the same time. I had lost my copy of the recipe so I was very happy to find it here on zaar...thanks for posting.

I madwe this as a trial run for the holidays, I used the 5 green onions white parts only but I think I will reduce the amount when I make it again, also I used Tabasco in place of cayenne and used fresh garlic, this is a great recipe thanks for sharing hon!... Kitten:)
