    Lennie's Note:

    This is quick to make up in your microwave, but you can also bake it in the oven. It has a terrific flavour, all the men in my family love it, and is nice to make when fresh peaches are out of season.

      If one is going to stray a wee bit from their diet, this is a dessert worth doing it for. I was attracted to the recipe because it could be done in the microwave, but at the same time apprehensive about doing so. After a quick review of the manual I felt fairly confident about the required power levels. It was actually pretty straightforward and the end result was absolutely delicious. The Amaretto in the topping added just the right finishing touch. I followed the ingredient list faithfully...but I would be more willing to experiment with light cream cheese and fat free sour cream in the future. Thank you Lennie.
