This was excellent! My husband really loved it. I will definitely be making it again. I made it exactly as the recipe specified. Only bad thing was now I have to watch what I am going to eat the rest of the day or I'll be into calorie overload!
Lovely! I used a loaf of homemade bread and sliced it about 1-1/2 inch thick. Then followed the recipe. I had the nicest plate of golden brown triangles. Taste was superb! We really loved the cream cheese and almond mix. Thanks Sharon!
