Potential changes & improvements:
-Try using a different type of jam, such as raspberry or strawberry.
-Add a layer of custard or cream cheese beneath the jam for extra richness.

Works Well With…
-Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

Common Mistakes:
-Overcooking the pastry. Be sure to prick the pastry well and only bake it until it is just starting to turn golden brown.
-Not using enough fruit. Be generous with the fruit filling to make sure each slice is packed with flavor.
