    Yummy! I made these ahead of time and then set them out of fridge 30 min before cooking in the oven at 350 covered for @ 40 min. & uncovered @ 15 min. I omitted the almonds and used for the sour cream only 1/2 cup and then 1/4 cup light cream cheese. Also added a splash of milk! When I was making them my DH and 1 yr old were more than happy to lick the bowl & beaters clean - they probably would have ate all of them had I let them!

    These were easy to make and enjoyed by all. I ended up using milk because they were so thick. I also made it the night before and then baked it the next day adding 20 minutes to the baking time.
