MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2013

Light and delicious spring dessert! I didn't have a tart pan so I made mine in a shallow pie dish. Everyone loved the nutty crust and raspberry finish. I may decrease the almond extract next time but overall a very nice dessert especially when garnished with fresh raspberries.

My crust did not cover the pan like I would have liked it to. My pudding was slightly rubbery, but everyone loved it otherwise. The taste was great.
