Description:

This recipe was published in Parade magazine. It caught my eye for two reasons: the low amount of flour listed, and the ease of preparation. This is a good basic recipe and beginner-friendly too. Once you've made it a few times you can so some experimenting--adding espresso powder, cinnamon or allspice, substituting pecans for walnuts, and so on.
