My Friends Are Weird ...
Understandably, when I ask folks to name their favorite cookie, most people cite the classic chocolate chip.
Not understandably, when I ask folks if they like their chocolate chip cookies with or without walnuts, most of them eschew nuts.
I've run into the phenomenon with brownies, too.
Toasted walnuts enhance baked goods. I put them in damn near everything. Where's the love, people? Where's the love?
