I had this dessert I a restaurant a few weeks ago and I LOVED it! I was so happy to find this recipe so I could recreate it at home. Although this recipe didn't quite look like what I had in the restaurant, it tasted just like it; maybe even a little better! It's very sweet, but not too sweet. I used a mix of walnuts and pistachios for the walnuts. Thanx for sharing!
