About this recipe: These are chewy walnut bars made by my Titia Albertin in Sao Miguel, Azores. They have a wonderful flavor that comes from Port wine.
Great tasting bars! Remember to chop the nuts finely. - 07 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh my word!! These are soooooo good!!! I made them last year and will make them again this year. Just be sure to use a nice Port and not a cheap brand, as the cheap ones tend to have a sour bitterness to them. These are good shippers too, which is important to me as my family lives 3000 miles away. I suggest, however, that you wrap each square in plastic wrap or waxed paper before shipping, as they are so moist they may crumble in transit. - 16 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Try this recipe! My mom makes these every year, but I lost my copy and couldn't reach her to get the recipe. I am so glad your recipe was here because I made some and I'm taking them to my son's place for Christmas eve. I recommend using an inexpensive tawny port wine because I think it is more mellow and more black-cherry-like than the plain port wine. Try to chop the walnuts really fine or buy the finely diced walnuts to save time. This is my favorite Christmas cookie of all. Not chewy to me... more like a moist piece of cake. They should be cut in small pieces because they are rich. Great recipe. Thanks for providing it here. - 24 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
