    Jen T's Note:

    I cant pronounce it right but it sure is delicious! These were the words from the original Chef. I have just adopted this recipe (3rd August 2005) and have endeavoured to adjust the steps of making so that anyone can make this great Dessert. The way the original instructions were posted you can understand why the first reviewer of this recipe said what they did. I hope I have corrected this and now this lovely dessert can be made by anyone. :) You can also use ground hazelnuts in place of the almonds for a change.

      This recipe originally comes from Holiday Cooking 1985 Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. The new instructions are correct and easy to follow. I use toasted finely crushed hazelnuts instead of almonds. Makes for a very nice Coffee Dacquoise dessert.

      This recipe is almost useless. Sorry, but a confection like this needs precise and explicit instructions. If you followed this recipe it would be an unmitigated disaster. Experienced chefs may know what to do but our newbies would be extremely unhappy.
