      Great recipe.Definitely a keeper.A delicious fairly easy alternative to the usual holiday desserts.I didn't bother with the Chantilly cream,and we had it while still a bit warm.I think because I may have undercooked it slightly and the fact that I served it warm both may have contributed to "not so neat" slices.I was going to post it myself,but I see you beat me to it.Thanks!
