  1. I have some homemade peach butter – how would this do in place of the apricot preserves?

    • I think it would work, but if it were me, I’d rather save the homemade peach butter for a place where the flavor would be the highlight, rather than a recipe like this one where it’s just one ingredient of several. Homemade peach butter is worth hoarding for biscuits or toast 🙂
