    Hello there ibkove your blog and recipes. Unfortunately I am allergic to walnuts (only) so I was wondering what other but you would recommend to go with this?

    • I would try a handful of toasted flaked almond – but don’t put these on top of the pastry before it goes in the oven. Toast them separately over low heat in a dry frying pan for a few minutes until they start to go golden brown. Watch carefully as they can burn quickly. Sprinkle of the pastry when it comes out of the oven before drizzling with honey.

  2. Hi, I was wondering is this something that could be frozen or taken in lunch boxes cold?
