If it had the texture of pudding, you needed to bake it longer. I baked mine an extra 10 or 15 mins until a toothpick poked in the center of the cake came out clean.

And it does have a nice tang to it. A tablespoon of tequila is not going to make for a tequila-flavored cake...

Be warned that this is a labor-intensive cookie....toasting nuts, de-skinning them, and chopping them. Chopping the toffee candy. Chopping the oats.

But wow, is it a delicious cookie!

Yum! Even better after sitting overnight to really let the flavors marry.

This is a keeper for us! I used Sourdough because that's my favorite and had it on hand. I also left out the arugula just because I'm not a fan.

This is a delicious grilled cheese. Definitely worth a try!

I enjoyed this and so did my coworkers. I am lazy and used a premade graham-cracker crust. I baked at temp on convection bake. I did need to add about 10-15 mins to the cook time because the center initially wasn't fully done.

It has a nice zip/tang to it. Don't expect it to actually taste like alcohol. This is not a rum cake lol....

I've made this for 2 or 3 years now and love it. I usually make a double batch at once. Someone asked how many holiday dishes have cumin in them...I'm not sure, but maybe you're afraid it will be an overpowering flavor. It is not. All the spices marry well together. I follow the recipe to a T and everyone LOVES it. So easy and perfect for mailing "
