This is hard. (i.e nuts are hard)
arg. I'm suprised cacoa didn't make the finals. It's sexy.
I'm stuck between the hipster and scenester nuts. This choice will be harder than the others.
I was persuaded by P. Cashews are awesome, but they are just too expensive these days!
I haven't voted yet and don't have an allegiance with cashews, but a couple of tablespoons in a dressing or in homemade cheese sure does make it creamy and rich tasting. The problem with them is that as great as it is as the base fat ingredient, it's not a nut I'd eat on its own.
I wanted to vote for walnuts. Hmpf.
Cashews are very delicious as nuts, in dishes, and for creamy sauces, but they are getting as expensive as pine nuts!
Almonds have great variety-smoked almonds for eating, slivered almonds for various desserts and component for sauces, sliced almonds for desserts, almond milks, etc.... and still reasonably priced
almonds are one of the key ingredients for a bunch of the pies in the new pie book, so there!
I don't like almonds, have never had almond milk, and almonds are the most expensive out of those for me to buy. ALSO: I don't like pie!
cashews are awesome in things, and pretty cheap from my indian shop.
coconut is AWESOME.
peanut butter is AWESOME.
so, I won't be voting for almond, that helped a lot... : /
Oww, even if you do not like almonds OR PIE, I still very much value your friendship and would like to remain good friends. I want you to know that.
Toasted sliced almonds in salads are bombdiggetylicious.
Do you feel the same about cobbler? ???
(Pie is meh, but cobbler is sooo good. I don't know why. They're essentially the same thing, but in a different shaped dish.)
I am not totally averse to all forms of pie, but I am not all ohmygoodnesspiemusteatpieyahpie either.
Peanut is my least favorite on this list. Peanut butter is delicious, but almond butter is equally delicious and peanuts have very little nutritional value compared to the other nuts on this list. I prefer to snack on almonds more than anything on this list, but cashews and coconuts are both stellar. Coconuts win my vote, though. Everything about them is perfect.
I was thinking I would be "sad" if coconut won, but then I remembered coconut milk.
I forgot about almond milk. Almond milk rocks rockinghorses.
I voted cashew, but I think my life will go on if almonds win.
Just not peanut or coconut. They shouldn't count. I don't know why, they just feel like imposters.
