Pine nuts aren't cheap
, but for a special holiday gift, or personal indulgence, we love the idea of a little jar of roasted pine nut butter. Cooking Light's Ann Taylor Pittman says this is "the richest, most indulgent nut butter ever, and satisfying in minuscule bits." All it takes is pine nuts, a neutral-flavored oil, salt, and a food processor. Spoon the butter into 2-ounce jars (Specialty Bottle
is a good souce) and you have a deluxe – and healthy! – gift. Perfect for anyone who's avoiding sugary treats this holiday season, or for those who savor the finer things in life.
