Sweet Hummus Recipe

When the Greeks wrote about ambrosia in their myths, they were probably thinking about garlicky hummus and pita. There are many hummus recipes, emphasizing different flavours and textures, so in my opinion, while sweet hummus is not common, it's still valid. This stuff ends up tasting like chocolate chip cookie dough with a peanut-butter flavour,…

Nonetheless, in order to keep up the name Poetry and Pastry, I should share a recipe or two. The cookies are called Movie Theaters because they include the two best things at…
