Being a native Texan, my favorite is pecans, however they are prepared, but especially pecan pie. Then, after them, I will go for cashews, then pistachios. Told my wife once someone needs to market cashew spread to put on toast......Well, it sounded good to me.

Right now I am making crepes, smearing some Nutella on the inside, then sprinkling some toasted hazelnuts on top. Fold, then eat.

I always find adding nuts usually makes something better and gives it texture. I love chocolate with macadamia nuts. Pancakes and French toast with walnuts or pecans.
I can't think of a nut I don't like except for a few of my so called friends.

I choose pecans, you left Brazil nuts off the list: probably my very favorite, but what I like depends on what I am using them for.

Cashews are my favourite for snacking and pine nuts my favourite for adding to salads.

I've made almond butter and cashew butter at home, using just nuts and salt. The almond butter came out great, but I didn't care for the cashew butter. I don't know why, since I love cashews.

It must have sounded good to someone else, too, because it is being marketed.

Oops, I didn't see your post when I posted.

I've tried almond butter, but I still prefer peanut butter.

I snack on roasted (no salt added) almonds. Healthy alternative to chips (which I love, but eat in moderation),

I wished I'd had known I could vote for more than one so I could have voted for almonds and macadamia nuts along with my first choice, cashews. The best mixed nuts combination, imho, is almonds, cashews and macadamia nuts. Planters makes it. Expensive but yummy.
