      I liked this recipe very much. I would recommend adding some almond extract for an extra flavor boost. The instructions are good and nice simple ingredients. Don't cook over 240, keep a close eye on the thermometer. I tried to use my blender to chop the nuts and it was a bit of a disaster. That said, the finer you get the nuts the better the paste consistency. Thanks Babara for a great recipe.
