“Found in a magazine. Very pretty presentation. I've made twice, once using the pastry shell recipe given, and once with refrigerated dough from the grocery store. The recipe's version is very good (plus you get two for the freezer, but if you are in a hurry, store bought crust is just fine. The second time, I also added a little bit of amaretto to the filling. Very good.”
