My parents were both visiting for the day, and I used their expertise to make sure I was doing it right:
My mom, helping me to "get it right".
I wanted to see what she thought they were supposed to look like at this stage, since I'd never seen it before!
I didn't toast the walnuts, this time. Tasted more authentic.
My parents brought some to my bubbie (the Spry version, not the oil version) and she called me in rapture: "Better than mine ever were!"
I think she's biased.
