      I made this recipe and subbed coconut for the ground almonds. I added vanilla. I thought it needed to be a little bit thicker, but it was still good.I doubled this recipe as you can see in the picture. Thanks for the recipe.

      This is the same recipe as in the Complete Middle East Cookbook By Tess Mallos although she also says you can garnish with pomegranate seeds too.
