I just learned that at 38 I’m middle-aged. Someone had to tell me. I guess I thought that middle age was 50 (we’re all going to live to at least 100, right?). Inside, though, I must be 12 because I can’t help but giggle at a recipe titled nuts in a blanket.
Nuts in a blanket is an adorable riff on pigs in a blanket. They are ricotta cheese pastries filled with an orange walnut log. They remind me very much of rugelach, but in a fun, different shape – and I’ve never had orange in a rugelach filling (now I want to!). I love the idea of serving nuts in a blanket as a passed dessert at a cocktail party.
