This isn't the Halva that we are used to but thats fine, this is yummy. I made both the cinnamon and cardamom and topped each with chopped pistachio's. Using the food processor helps this go really fast. DH loved it! wow :D. This is simple and very tasty. I had a small bit of trouble cutting it into nice looking squares but I'm sure thats because I didn't allow it to chill long enough. I'm so pleased that I tried this! Made for ZWT 8.
