This is what we had for breakfast today. I found this recipe in 'Family Circle' magazine. The original recipe calls for pineapple spread, however, pineapple is not in my pantry, so, I used blueberry filling instead. It is delicious, but I think it would taste much better if I used pineapple (it goes better with the cinnamon topping). And don't think that I woke up very2 early to prepare this...I prepare everything up to step 6, then cling wrap it, shoved it into the fridge overnight. This morning I just prepare the crumb and bake.
