Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family and friends loved this dessert. My family and friends loved this dessert. This dessert disappears fast every time I make it. Tip: The dough will be difficult to manage unless well chilled. I rolled dough out onto flour dusted parchment paper & kept the rolling pin lightly dusted. Use a light hand when rolling out. Some may find it easier to pat dough out in the pan.
