Enjoy this delicate and enchanting recipe by Hannah Mendenhall of Immer Wachen. She has combined a crust of almonds, flax, buckwheat flour, coconut oil and maple syrup with a creamy cashew filling sweetened with fresh honey and flavored with lemon juice and vanilla extract. The result is a blend of perfectly balanced flavors and texture. For the best effect use a combination of fresh summer berries like blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and marionberries.
