Expert Tips

Packaged nuts are more expensive than those sold in bulk; save money by purchasing walnuts in the bulk foods section of the supermarket.

To firmly pack the base ingredients into the pan, slip your hand into a plastic bag and pat the mixture down or use the flat side of a pancake turner to pat the base in place.
