    Chef Schellies's Note:

    I ripped this recipe from a magazine a long time ago. I made it many times and it always turned out delicious as well as beautiful. Since then, I misplaced my box of recipes torn from magazines until the other day. I had previously tried to find this recipe on Zaar, but couldn't so I was happy to find the clipping so now I can share the recipe with all of you. Since the layers are baked separately, the cook time and the prep time overlap somewhat. Prep time does not include refrigeration time. I have used low-fat cream cheese and it turns out just as good. Enjoy!

      I have been making these for the past 20 years and did not add the 1/2 cup of nuts on the top. I guess I never really read the recipe right before. They were always a hit. Now I'm going to make them right and see if anybody notices. Thanks for the info
