MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2008

We liked this recipe but 45 minutes was way to long to bake it is was dried out. Next time I will check it after 30 and watch it. I did not like that it only used half a package of almond paste now I have a half a package. I will probably make it again soon. I also used craisins not fresh cranberries and it was good. I will try blueberries next time.
