Delicious cupcakes, except they were too sweet. Next time I will make with 1 cup sugar instead of 1 and 1/2.

I loved these and plan to make them again. However, they are a bit too sweet. Has anyone made these with less sugar? Any thoughts how that would affect the recipe. Ditto on the aroma, they smell amazing!

These are sensational! I substituted Splenda baking mix. the dough is very similar to a torte dough with more nuts than flour. very rich with the 4 eggs. Shelling the nuts took the most prep time; after that about 5-8 minutes more prep. They were a breeze to make and look and smell incredible. It was very hard to put the remainders in the freezer. I will make these for the holidays and anytime I need a dessert for a potluck. Thanks for the recipe Martha and Staff!
