"I made this torte AFTER Thanksgiving because my Grandmother makes a version of it every year and I just LOVE it, needless to say I wanted more. So, I found this recipe which sounded closest to hers and I was NOT disappointed!! This torte is totally delish and SO close to my Grams' that our whole pan is almost gone, and I made it yesterday!! Definitely will be a staple at every Thanksgiving from now on. Thank you so much for the recipe!"

"I'm very surprised and disappointed that this contains raw egg white! I just got done with this very lengthy recipe and realized in the last step as I folded in raw egg white that I now won't be able to serve this on Thanksgiving tomorrow because there are two pregnant ladies attending! Very disappointed to say the least."
