dd#4 who hates nuts gave this a 10 plus! now that that's out of the way, i made this for company using a frozen pie crust that i bought at the farmers market,and it was very easy to mix the ingredients with a whisk, then a spatula and bake. i was mixing the topping when my guests arrived, so i just whipped the cream with the conf sugar and 1 1/2 tbs pure almond extract, and refrigerated it a few hours. my guests raved about this and i loved it too! thanks sharon
