      Hokies, you've done it again! This is really lovely, and my boys are so excited to have it for breakfast tomorrow! I took Krista Roes' advice and halved the sugar with no problem, and was inspired by Pixie's Kitchen to throw a thinly sliced apple into the filling. The result was a delicious almond/apple treat that we are sure to make again. Since we made it for a morning meal I skipped the glaze, but with it I think this would be an awesome dessert. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT7, for the Vivacious Violets.

      We LOVE this! I make this at least 2 times a month for breakfast, it is so simple yet comes out of the oven looking like you spent a lot of time in the kitchen, I still want to try serving this as a dessert with some fresh fruit. Thank you for posting such an amazingly simple tasty recipe.
