Recipe by Kmac1805

My mom served this as an appetizer at special occassion & company dinners when I was growing up. I have tried for many years to find the recipe online, with no success. And then one day my mom came across the recipe and sent it to me. I'm posting to keep from losing it for another 25 years... Might sound unusual -- and it is.. .but so delicious. VERY light, creamy, slightly lemony with subtle earth/nut flavors and unexpected texture of the minced almonds. It was a dish everyone always raved about...
