I was chosen to make something special to bring into work for the boss' retirement party, so I chose this. I got rave reviews and lots of compliments on this and when I finally grabbed a piece, I could see what they were talking about. It was amazing! I did chop some nuts in the blender and add them to the crust before making it. Truly enjoyed!

Well, I took this to Thanksgiving dinner. It got TOP ratings from the family-- fantastic, amazing, phenomenal, and "damn good." This was not hard to make. I only have a small processor, so I used it for the carrots, then a hand blender for the rest. I didn't use the optional garnish, so it wasn't terribly decorative, but nobody cared. I might add some nuts into the crust next time, pecans maybe. Thanks a lot Cindy!
