Nut Recipes

Nuts can turn a lackluster dish into something truly excellent. They add crunchy texture to plain, limp salads, fatty richness to blended dips and sauces and a blank canvas for flavor in everything from spiced holiday snacks to simple desserts. Plus they're loaded with heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. F&W's guide includes dozens of ways to fit nuts into your diet with recipes for every course, occasion and season.

Chestnut Pavlova
This chestnut pavlova recipe is fabulously festive: an exuberant, rich, and luxurious treat for the holidays. The meringue base is crisp on the outside with a soft marshmallowy interior,topped with sweetened chestnut puree (sometimes labeled "chestnut spread;" seek out Clement Faugier brand) followed by swaths of softly whipped cream and splinters of bitter chocolate. This chestnut pavlova is, despite appearances, a relatively easy affair. The only complicated part is the meringue base, and, provided you stash it in a completely airtight container, it can be made 2 days in advance. Handle the baked meringue carefully,as it is quite fragile.
Auntie Roberta’s Bourma (Armenian Phyllo Pastry with Walnuts)
A wooden skewer, dowel, or chopstick is the only special tool needed to make this crispy scrunched phyllo pastry filled with chopped nuts and drizzled with sugary syrup. A splash of fresh lemon juice adds bright, zesty flavor to the syrup that balances both the sweetness of the pastry and the rich, buttery walnuts. The recipe is from Roberta Kochakian of Los Angeles, who is descended from a family of Armenian Genocide survivors and has devoted much of her life to chronicling traditional Armenian recipes and cooking techniques.

Curry-Spiced Nut Bars

Pecan Tassies
Just like miniature pecan pies, pecan tassies have a crisp, buttery crust and a sweet, pecan-packed filling. We like to spike our filling with a little bourbon and put a couple of bittersweet chocolate chips at the bottom of each cookie. Slideshow: More Pecan Recipes 
Pistachio Salad
Pistachio salad is actually more of a pudding, studded with marshmallows and crushed pineapple. Normally prepared with instant pudding, we make ours with a fresh pistachio paste and custard, then serve it with a generous dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream and plenty of coarsely chopped pistachios. Slideshow: More Pistachio Recipes
