      You sure can't be in rush with this recipe. The end result is delicious though. I might suggest cutting back on the bake time, or at least perhaps lower the oven temperature. i found the crust browned way to fast and I had to keep an eye on it with the filling in it, as it finished baking. Made for Help A Naked Recipe Photo Tag game. :)
