Such a complementary side to a French tourtiere. 22 girls came to a pre-Christmas party in a small town in Quebec. Food was wonderful and this recipe was a huge success. Only thing I did differently was to cut up the fruit into smaller pieces; and, oh yes, a little bit of cognac made it 110% wonderful.
