My husband said this is the best thing I've ever made! I didn't have cardamom or cloves, so I used nutmeg and allspice. Also, I didn't use a food processor. I just smashed the walnuts so they were in small pieces and mixed everything together! This is easy and DELICIOUS!
Very good crisp,I added some oats. Thanks
Fabulous dessert especially for a chilly night - very straight forward to make although I used tinned apricots as fresh were not in season - I loved the inclusion of cardamon . Made and enjoyed for ZWT 111 so my thanks to you Rita for posting it.
