    Very nice, refreshing soup. Definately a pleasant surprise. If you like almonds, this is quite tasty.  -  12 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sweet, rich, indulgent. Tasted great, looked spectacular. Would make again -- hope it impresses! (I layered as per CHRISTINE1906, and mixed 1/4c of the white sugar in with the brown as per BROWNIEBAKER). See pic.  -  28 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Have made this several times and love it. I do add a few more cloves of garlic though and eat the lot myself.  -  01 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
