PERFECT! These were awesome; sweet, with a little heat, which creeps up on you! I thought I had walnut halves, but, mine were pieces, which worked out fine! The walnuts made a great nibble, before dinner, and would be perfect as a cocktail nosh. Oh, would also be awesome on a salad! I'm so glad I finally made these; I will save in them in my "tried and true'" cookbook! Thanks for sharing, katew!

We loved these! They are great by themselves, but I look forward to adding them to other dishes as well. I used some Thyme Honey and they were sooo good! Thanks for posting, Kate. Made for ZWT 6.
