    Thanks Bow. I’ve been dreaming up this cookie ever since your sister in law made those apricot and raspberry squares with walnuts earlier this year. I? could have used your cleaver to crush the nuts but I had to settle for a meat mallet.

    Rest assured that I’m trying my best to produce good recipe tutorials. The tone in my voice is not meant to be sarcastic. However my daughter would agree with you that my voice is irritating.? Especially when I ask her to do something.

    There’s a good possibility that peanuts would work but since I never tried it I’m not sure. If I try it I’ll let you know. And thank you for? adding my channel to your featured channels. I did see it and I also added your channel to my box as well but you have to click on “more” to see it because I have a lot of food friends.
