Wow! Even with my mediocre skills, this is truly bakery quality! Flavors that meet up beautifully, just right on sweetness, a crust that holds together but isn't tough & the occasional walnut crunch - perfect! Your low end cook time was right on the mark in my convection oven. This will definitely become a regular sweet treat for me! Thanks!
