    This changed my life.


    I would have to agree this was way too complicated and I think you should simplify more.

    THANK YOU!!! I have been relying on a very old recipe that my great grandma came up with, but I would always get stuck at the part where you apply the jelly to the knife, and I forgot that you have to grasp the knife, not just set it on the counter. Thank you for putting such a complicated recipe into simple terms for the people who have struggled with it like me. :)
