Recipe by CharityAnn

I couldn't keep my hands off these when I was growing up. Raspberry is my favorite jam and cranberry my favorite juice to use for this recipe, but you can use any flavor combination you want or have available.

This is so delicious! I didn't have an 8x12 pan so I used 9x13. I used the full recipe for the bottom crust then halved it again for the topping.
