  1. Wonderful and crunchy. I used almonds and also added a tbsp of olive oil. The clove was overpowering. I will reduce or eliminate it next time.


Hey there!~ My name is Crystal. I am 19,and living in Florida. I really love to cook,& bake all the time for my family.I just get so much enjoyment out of it!
