    I’ve made this many, many times. It’s super easy, delicious, and a show stopper! Even a beginner baker can make this and it looks professional.

    Could not taste anything but overpowering almond. May as well have saved my fruit. There was nothing tartlike about this, unless you count white stuff in a crust. It also had a really gross mouth feel. Will not be trying again.

    This is so easy and so delicious! We make it several times during the summer. I use kiwi instead of peaches in the center.
