The subheading for this could be: "It's important to read directions completely!"
This is my first TWD recipe attempt- my baking experience is pretty limited which is painfully obvious if you look at my collection of baking utensils and pans (basically I have a whisk, spatula, icing spatula & a handful of muffin & special bundt pans). I knew I needed a 9" pan for this recipe so I ran out to TJ Maxx to get one. Once I started progressing through the recipe I read something about removing the sides of the pan and realized I was way up the creek with no paddle. It wasn't a regular 9" pan I needed but a 9" springform pan instead. Yikes. Too late. The crust was already in the oven, the whipped cream was in the fridge & the filling almost finished. So I finished the recipe knowing full well I'd never be able to get the torte out of the pan in one piece. It was a depressing moment to be sure.
Nonetheless, it still tasted alright!
The changes that I made to the recipe included:
-using peanut butter oreos (about 30)
-using lightly salted peanuts (instead of the fully salted variety)
