Virtual Potluck has offered up quite a few opportunities to try new products and I am always super excited. Artisana makes a great line of nut butters, I'm talking everything way beyond my standard fare of peanut butter. Not that my love of peanut butter has changed but with the options of walnut, macadamia nut, cashew, almond, and pecan has me pretty excited.
I received the macadamia nut, cashew, and walnut butters to try. I made the best macadamia nut white chocolate chip cookies and I stirred cashew butter into my ramen noodles, made sandwiches and one of my favorites the walnut butter scones with honey-orange glaze. The perfect little breakfast bites! All of the products I tried were top notch and delicious.
I've never met a scone I didn't love and these were no exception, the walnut butter added a depth of flavor that I haven't tasted before in a scone. When I was a kid I hated walnuts, I would beg my Grandma not to put them in cookies or her famous banana bread. Now I crave them and until now I had now idea walnut butter existed.
