What is "icing sugar"? Is that superfine sugar? This recipe sounds wonderful--can't wait to try it!

Thank you for your suggestions! We have updated the recipe to read more clearly and include the yield.

When do you add the nuts and how long do you bake them?

This, as well as lots of the receipts are great. I do have a suggestion That you add the amount of serving that you get from each receipt. It would be vey helpful in lots of situations. Thanks H. Garner
