This was very good, my almonds did not burn, just light brown. A nice light finish to a meal. Served it with Curried coconut mussels also in this issue. Thank you!
A dusting of powdered sugar or cocoa powder is a traditional garnish for this classic dessert. Here, we sprinkle the tops with sliced almonds before baking to add contrasting flavor and texture.
