It being time for The Desolation of Smaug, I came back to the Lembas recipe from last year and made the suggested changes.

a generous 1.75 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp ground cloves
a generous 1/4 cup ground pecans, because we had them and did not have almonds
used cider from the Dockrey orchard
used half and half instead of milk

Kneaded dough by hand for a couple of minutes before rolling it out.


Let's see how it does!
*time passes*
Ohh, very nice. The pecans and the half & half add just the right extra fat to soften the flavor and texture. This batch is less crumbly than before, and the flavor is excellent. Sticking with this recipe from now on.
