I made this yesterday because it had two of my favourite flavours, Apple and Raspberry.. I wasn't dissapointed, it was lovely,(notice Im speaking in the past tense) It was very easy to make though my lattice work left something to be desired. The recipe was easy to follow, I loved the addition of the almond extract, reminded me of a bakewell tart. I didnt eat all myself DD took most of it home to feed to her room mates and the feedback is "when can you make another". Thanks for the recipe.

What a delicious recipe and so perfect for this time of the year! It was so easy to make and was all eaten in no time. The only change I made to the recipe was to mix up a little glaze with confectioners sugar and milk to drizzle over the servings. I did this instead of dusting it with the sugar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
