      This is an excellent recipe. I am a Houstonian and have made this torte many times for parties. I lost my recipe a few years ago, and I am so happy to have found it again on Recipe Zaar! Melange Catering originally suggested serving it with a stargazer (rubrum) lily in the center. It's fragrant and compliments the color of the raspberry preserves beautifully. The torte serves a crowd, is a lovely presentation, and is delicious. It's a classic for your cocktail buffet table, and your guests will love it!

      I was a little skeptical, but was looking for a different way to share fresh home grown raspberries at a party. This was to die for. Got better and better the longer it sat, kept well with leftovers. Hubby took them to his office, slicked up very fast with rave reviews there as well. Will definitely do again next raspberry season.
