I opened a container of roasted mixed nuts the other day, and spent a minute surveying the behavior of the humans in my family. I’m willing to bet that the mixed nut personalities also vary at your house – some love the almonds, some love the peanuts, some love the pecans, and some love them all. I have a hunch you’ve got a favorite, too. You make a beeline for the chosen nut, targeting them inconspicuously (or perhaps not so discreetly) out of the mix. No one likes to make it too obvious, am I right?
For me, it’s the cashews. My son agrees. Luckily for the two of us, my husband dives for the other nuts, handing all the curvy cashews over to us. I’m not sure what it is; all I know is that it’s always been my favorite, since I was a little girl.
My favorite nut is now one of my favorite nut milks – the natural creaminess of cashew milk is delicious in my daily smoothies, and I’m loving it in other treats, too, like this Cashew Butterscotch Pudding Pie. It’s completely dairy free, and topped with a thick cashew cream in place of whipped cream. There’s even cashews in the chocolate graham cracker crust, making it the perfect dessert for cashew lovers. It turns out that my husband will happily eat cashews in pudding pie form — it’s irresistible even to him.

It sounds delicious but it’s definitely not dairy free as it has butter in both the crust and the filling.
I can just imagine how thick and silky the cashews make this pie. Heading over for the recipe now!
I’m quite partial to cashews as well. And, yet, I still haven’t tried making cashew milk or butter! Just love the look of this pie!
I would love to join you for a slice – this sounds heavenly!!
Oh I always make a beeline for the cashews. And they are my dad’s favorite too, so we have to fight over them! I think I’ll make this pie for the two of us! It looks gorgeous, Liren!
Aw, I hope you and your dad like it, Liz. Hurray for cashews!
