I'm not always the best baker but these are delicious -- I'm not sure if they should have risen more, between my poor baking skills and a wonky oven I am never sure!!! But they taste wonderful with the intriguing blend of walnuts, chocolate and lemon essence, really different , my husband was VERY pleased with these sweet treats! (and the sweet potato, lol, they will neer know! ;) ) Thank you, Linky, lovely recipe I really enjoyed making!!
