Kitchen Tips
Variation
Prepare as directed, omitting the Irish cream liqueur.
Substitute
Prepare as directed, substituting pistachios for walnuts. Be sure to use the natural colored pistachios, not the red-dyed nuts.
Special Extra
For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method.  Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed.  Remove foil.  When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.
