Want a sweet treat with a bit of crunch? Here are 3 nutty desserts you have to try.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate texture in my food. That includes dessert. Although I’m a 50 year old woman, when I get an ice cream cone, I want sprinkles on it. It’s not to make it look pretty (although rainbow sprinkles are rather charming). It’s to add texture to creamy dessert.
For some homemade desserts that have crunch, give one of these a try.
Almond Joy Cookies– If you’re a fan of the aforementioned candy bar, I think you’re going to be a fan of these cookies as well. Filled with flaked coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips, these cookies are sweet and tender.
Maple Walnut Biscotti– If you like a cookie with a bit more crunch, these biscotti are the choice. Sweet from the maple glaze and crisp from the double baking, they are an elegant dessert option. Even better, biscotti can be served for breakfast, and no one will question your judgment.
Gooey Pecan & Bourbon Blondies– These, too, have a crunchy element, but they also have a gooey, buttery texture. I am not kidding when I say that you need a napkin nearby. You might even want to eat them with a plate and fork because they’re so gooey.
No matter what nutty dessert you’re looking for, between three of these you should be able to find the perfect one for you.
