  5. STEP 5

    Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.

  6. STEP 6

    Bake 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

I thought it was too salty. I would leave out the salt in the filling next time to try it. My husband thought it was great, but I think he salts everything too much. I'm going to compare other recipes I have to see how much salt they have if any.
