I'm nuts for nuts!!! Always have been, probably always will be. When I saw this recipe was chosen for December I was very excited. Now I can actually make them AND store them away for all of our holiday gatherings instead of me eating them all myself (something I would otherwise do).
This recipe was fast and easy although a bit costly (at least for the amount I made). As a frequent shopper of Costco, I purchased all my nuts there and used a combination of cashews, pecans, walnuts and almonds. Anybody want to play a game of "Where's Waldo" in the below photo?
Instead of the 2 cups of nuts stated in the recipe on page 18 of "Around My French Table" by Dorie Greenspan, I used more like 6 cups, total nuts. See, I told you I love nuts!!! Good thing I'm saving these for company :)
Oh, I also added some additional ingredients that the recipe didn't call for (you should know me by now). My additions were: a sprinkling of brown sugar, some smoked paprika, some smoked ground cumin and some fresh grated nutmeg. Is that be so wrong??? I think not!
