This week called for pecans. Because I am not a fan of nuts -- only pistachios, only -- it is always even more of a challenge to see when others request them in a dish.
Crap. What to do?
I made buttered cinnamon-sugar pecan croissants and gifted them to a neighbor.
This totally reminds of a decadent childhood treat: We would butter both sides of slices of wheat toast then, on one of the buttered sides, sprinkle cinnamon-sugar that we would whip up quickly in a bowl.
We would then sprinkle the mixture on one side of the bread and place the other side down on a skillet. When the toast began to brown, we added cheese -- a cinnamon-sugar cheese toast! Some people call it grilled cheese.
Yum. And, yes, I was more attracted to sugar in my younger days.
Pre-made croissants, a roll and then a turn in the oven and there you have it: buttered cinnamon-sugar pecan croissants. They smelled so, so good, but they were not my taste.
I hope my neighbors like them.
