Some foods are simply underrated, don’t you think? Never get the credit they deserve.
Can’t you think of a few?
Take the lowly walnut, for example. Everyone’s always blathering on about peanuts, cashews and almonds like they’re coated in gold. If this was Nutty High, those golden nuts would be the Cool Kids, sitting at their own table at lunchtime and hating on all the other poor nuts at the Friday night football game.
That’s just sad.
Walnuts are that quiet girl at the back of the classroom wearing only black and listening to New Order or Morrissey when she’s not in the art studio. She’ll grow up to be a Mensa-joining super model. Where will Ms. Cashew be then?
One thing’s for sure: that ten years reunion will be NUTS! (ew) (gross) (I’m SO sorry.)
I’ve been making these simple cookies for a few years now and, just like walnuts, they’re sleepers.
It’s the butter, and powdered sugar and, of course, the walnuts: everyone is always surprised by how much they enjoy each and every bite.
And just like any other icebox cookie, the hardest part of preparing them is waiting for them to chill solid so that you can slice and bake.
You can do it! You can do it! You can do it!
