Is a type of shortbread which is served at Easter. When cool can be decorated with powdered sugar glaze and slice almonds. For ease I make it in the food processor but you can make by hand!

I cooked up some apples with tbsps sugar for the pie filling. Unfortunately I didn't have any almonds...they make it look so nice on the picture!! It still tasted lovely though!

My son made the crust while I made apple pie filling. This went together easily and tasted great! It reminded me of my Baci, Thanks a lot!

Easy to make, delightful to eat! Being without Southern Comfort, I took my cue from the almonds in your lovely photo & used Amaretto. I will admit to eating more than my share of the crust - (it tasted like a shortbread cookie) but DH prefers the filling anyway. This teamwork resulted in an empty pan pretty quickly! Thanks for another winner of a recipe!
