Oh,baby! Oh, Nuts!

About 2 weeks ago I received an email from a gentleman named Sam . Sam's email explained that he was doing some marketing for Oh,Nuts! and wanted to know if I was interested in sampling some of their products. I was leery and checked around to see how true and safe the offer was. I found quite a few blogs that had received the same offer and all seemed well. I didn't want to give me home address so I emailed back a "heck, yeah, I'd like some free nuts" and gave Sam my work address. About a DSC00631week later this is what I got........

* Cinnamon Pecans 1 lb.
* Jumbo Raw Georgia Pecans 1 lb.
* Roasted Salted Pistachios 1 lb.
* Toffee Pecan Cinnamon Buns 1 lb.

The day I received the package I opened the bags of Cinnamon Pecans and Toffee Pecan Cinnamon Buns. The bag of Cinnamon Pecans? Gone, by Saturday afternoon! They were so goooooood. I really wanted to try and save some to throw in a batch of Blondies but it just didn't happen. Sorry, Sam, I really wish I could say I was half as crazy for the Toffee Pecan Cinnamon Buns as I was for the other "flavored" pecans but I can't. They were just okay. I personally thought the ratio of coating to nut was too high. I haven't opened the other two bags yet but I've got a few ideas kicking around for them. I'm thinking I haven't made Pecan pies before and I just saw on Avesta's Check It Out a recipe for minis. For the pistachios I'm thinking the Greenies that Clumsby Cookie made earlier this year and then saw again on The Crepes of Wrath. She added marshmallows to hers! See why I love her?

So, what do you think? Neither recipe is going to use up all of the nuts, ha-ha! (I've been cracking up every time I type the word nuts. Stupid yes, but I have 6 brothers and have been exposed to many "man" jokes! They keep running through my head! LOL!) Any ideas on what else would be tasty with Jumbo Georgia Pecans or Pistachios added to it? Also, what to do with those Toffee pecan Cinnamon Buns? Help!
