I’ve been experimenting with several versions of this recipe and I think I’ve found the best variation. The others I’ve tried are either too juicy and you have to keep them cool to keep their shape, or they’re just too crumbly and don’t stay together well. This combination has (in MY opinion) the best consistency.
