GOOD FOR THE SOUL! This is so my type of dessert! I made this in the food processor with the metal blade, starting with the butter and sugar adding whole almonds following with the rest of the crust ingredients. Then the topping I mixed in the blender. This is a quick prep dessert. I did sub the lemon for lime and added lime zest. Also used Lavender Sugar With Vanilla recipe #101039 in place of the topping sugar. Thanks for posting!
