a delicious birthday gift

Isn't it beautiful?! And delicious, too. This was my gift from Michael for my 22nd birthday, along with a sandwich-inspired cook book - more to come about this at a later date. But anyway, this was so good, it nearly put my dessert-creating skills to shame. Hmmm, this guy might be up to no good....hehe.

Anyway, this was SO SO good, and it wasn't even chocolate!! Mike added ground-up almonds to the shortbread-like crust, which made it really great. And then there was this cream cheese layer and a limeade-esque layer. To top it off, it was also a Paula Deen, Butter Queen recipe. You can't get much more delicious than that.

And I was going to take a picture of it in slice-form, but I remembered to do that right as I was placing the last bite into my mouth. Whoops. Maybe next time. :)

I'm so glad you liked the dessert! Next time I'm making one for our house... I didn't realize it would be sooooo good. BTW, the lemon pie you and Michael made is getting rave reviews.... not too sweet.... just perfect!
