    Outstanding! Crust is sweet, nutty and crumbly, the cream filling is a delicious velvety custard which sweetness and richness is cut through by the raspberries. I had this only once before while traveling Germany, and I must say that this was better than my memories. Thank you!

    I made this recipe for my mother to bring to a tea with her and it went over really well. The only change that I made was to use strawberries in place of the raspberries but I plan on trying the raspberry variety the next time I make this. Very good recipe!
