This was excellent. I used a bag of frozen berries for the filling and they were perfect. I think you could cut back a bit on the sugar without hurting this dish. Thanks for the great recipe.

I used a Jar of Lingonberries and let the sauce seep through a regular strainer... Worked out perfect!These were gone real quick. Thank you thank you :O)
