A very pretty dessert that is fairly quick and easy to make.

Top Review by Lt. Amy

This was pretty good. If I made it again however, I would reduce the amount of almond extract as it was a bit overwelming. I think I would also use a smaller pan and cook it a little longer at a lower heat. The smaller pan would make the filling a bit thicker which would be good.
