While this recipe produced a pie that tasted absoutely great, it lost a couple of stars due to the way it looked (mushy and indescript), as well as not holding together at when trying to transfer each slice to a plate. I made and served it at a dinner party, and everyone's portions disappeared right away. But, as an attractive and appealing way to end the meal, this fell short of my expectations.
