The recipe and directions are overall great. I recommend either omitting the salt all together or decrease the amount to 1/4 teaspoon. An entire teaspoon makes this treat more salty than sweet. ...

Sooo good! I also reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and they were lightly sweet and perfect for us! Will make them often, specially to add to couple spinach and goat cheese salads that we like from ...

Out. Stand. Ing. Addictive and dangerous, as well. I followed the recipe to the letter, eschewing the addition of vanilla or playing around with the amount of sugar and salt. If you follow the...

This is a great and simple recipe! I read all the reviews first to see what people did different, and I did them all plus my own twist. First I reduced the sugar to only 1/2 cup, and added honey...
