Spooned Halva

6 tb butter
1 c cream of wheat
1/2 c chopped nuts or pignolia nuts (optional)
2 c water
1 c sugar

Melt butter in a deep pan; add cream of what and nuts. With wooden
spoon stir over moderate heat until golden, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile bring water and sugar to a slow boil. Cook 3 minutes.
Pour syrup slowly over cream of what and simmer, stirring until
slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Cover; let stand 10 minutes.
Shape with individual molds turn out onto plates and sprinkle with
cinnamon or fill ungreased 9 inch square pan and sprinkle with
cinnamon. Cut into sqaures and serve.

I believe this is called spooned halva because in the villages in
Greece they use a spoon to shape the halva.

Halvah with cranberries, July 21, 2005 - 09:15 PM
Reviewer: Emily Mercurio from NY
You can also add some canned whole berry cranberry sauce to taste after pulling the halvah off the heat, along with a small pinch of salt if desired. This is also usually when chopped walnuts are added, to keep their texture. The end result is a less firm mixture, but fluffier, very tasty and a nice side dish or breakfast treat. Lovley served warm.
