Came upon this recipe in an old Jewish cookbook some time ago. Have been making it for Passover many years since then. I like the addition of walnuts and also that it is pareve (=neutral, neither dairy nor meaty). Mostly we eat it as it is but I have made it fancy by garnishing with different kind of fruit.
