I’ve adapted this incredible recipe only slightly from the original, in Phyllis Glazer’s Hebrew-language cookbook, No Gluten, No Sugar (L’lo Gluten L’lo Sucar). In this case I actually have added sugar, but only to make the ingredients list a bit easier to compile. They’re crispy on the outside, and crunchy but a bit softer on the inside. As with most desserts I make, these are not super-sweet.
