    Hi Nava,
    I followed the directions but the “glaze” never formed; it stayed liquidy, even after an additional 10 minutes in the oven. Does it need to cool first before the glaze forms? Do you have any idea why this happened?? Thanks so much!! I am a big fan of your web site and your cookbook “Vegetarian Celebrations.”

    Hi Liz,

    So sorry this didn’t work out for you! I’m not sure why that would have happened. I haven’t made this for a while, so maybe I’ll retest so I can wrap my head around what might have gone wrong. I will be back to you shortly! And thanks for your kind thoughts.
