Brussels Sprouts with Pine Nuts

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by averybird

Made a similar version of this for Thanksgiving from Jeanne Kelley's cookbook Blue Eggs & Yellow Tomatoes and loved it (although I modified by using walnuts & dried marjoram). The flavors were amazing and while the cream does not make an actual sauce, it coats the sprouts with a creamy goodness that is definitely a part of what makes this dish great. Made a second time & chose to roast the Sprouts in the oven first at 425 until golden and then proceed with the recipe- which also worked well . A keeper- thanks for posting!
