Recipe by rochsann
A satisfying twist for an old favorite--my DH particularly likes it and now requests it over traditional recipes. It is from the November 2002 issue of "Bon Appetit", Penny and Armin Rembe's Thanksgiving celebration story. Their recipe calls for 2/3 cup pine nuts and 1 cup pecans; feel free to use those measurements, but I've realized that pine nuts really do have a stronger flavor than pecans, so I've lowered the pine nut amount to 1/2 cup and upped the pecans to 1 1/4 cups. Either way, you're bound to enjoy it.

- 1 cup sugar
