Hello Binnur,what do you think about adding some gelatine to the carrot and sugar mixture? I have nt tried making it yet but I am afraid the dough would be too loose.

You don't need to add gelatin in the recipe the dough won't be loose:)

Merhaba Binnur,
It's not clear on the quantity of nuts to add to the Carrot Delight
recipe, it calls for 1/43 cups,
is that 1-3/4 cups or 1-1/4 cups?
Love your recipes,thanks,
