Posted for Zaar World Tour, this is a great Russian dessert! This recipe is adapted from Everyday Cooking for the Jewish Home by Ethel G. Hofman. This is also popular in the Northeast and Canada.

This was wonderful! My husband and adore fruit desserts and this was really nice and different, making a sweet change of pace! Only thing I did different was used almonds instead of pecans because that was what I had onhand. I will be making this again!
