It tastes good,But I had a hard time with it. I think maybe it should be whipped before adding the walnuts. I just don`t know. I did work fast.But it just seemed to harden to fast! Or even skip the whipping part!!!!!!! You may laugh at me but I buttered an other cookie sheet and put it on top then stepped on it using my weight to spread it out. There was no way I could have stretched it out.!!
