This is one of my favorite recipes! It was originally from Sunset Cookbook Favorite Recipes I. I have made it many times over the years and there has never been one person who has not enjoyed it. We upped the sour cream amount to 1 cup, but it is fine either way. (With kids, we did not include sliced almonds) It's delicious!
