Hands down, this was the favorite of the ladies in my Red Hat Society group when I made a few varieties to take with me. I think next time, I may use some brown sugar to up the sweet factor and possibly use pequin peppers for some heat.
Auntie Cookie, you are a genius. I made these tonight. I'm looking towards my holiday baskets. These were wonderful! I used all the ginger and didn't take it out, (couldn't see it!), and I figure it's a good eye-popper for those lucky ones who get it! I used parchment paper to bake these because I could just see myself with torn foil...UGH! I am not a big walnut fan, but these taste leafy and crisp...I really like them! Oh, by the way, I used the full amount of hot pepper sauce, (Tapatio, we don't care much for Tabasco), and next time I think I will use more, maybe twice more, for more kick. Great recipe, Aunt Cookie, a keeper and winner!
