7 Best Nut Dessert Recipes

Get ready for desserts gone nuts! Here at Celebrations, we love featuring National Food Holidays, and with National Nut Day coming up on October 22nd, what better way to honor the day than with a round-up of delicious desserts!

From almonds, to hazelnuts, and even macadamia nuts, we have the perfect dessert option for incorporating whichever you choose.
 

If pecans are your favorite, then try this pecan chocolate cream pie. Not only is this pie perfect for the upcoming holiday season, but it doesn't even requiring baking! With a pecan cookie crust and a simple chocolate cream filling, this pie is a delicious option your dessert table. If you'd rather skip the chocolate, make these sugar and spice pecans instead. 

For a twist on a classic apple pie, try our sour cream apple almond pie recipe. The almonds used to coat the top make for a delicious, crispy crust while the sour cream ingredient creates an extra creamier, fluffier texture. This is definitely a scrumptious and sweet dessert option!

Bake our decadent hazelnut currant scones, which are the perfect balance of tart currants and sweet hazelnuts! For an additional hazelnut option, try these chocolate dipped biscotti. These crunchy cookies are perfect for dipping in a cup of delicious coffee or tea and the melted chocolate makes this traditional Italian dessert extra decadent. 

For a traditional cookie recipe, we recommend these white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Bake them for yourself or stack them in a mason jar, tie with a cute ribbon and give as a gift to share the joy! 

We couldn't have a round-up of the best nut desserts without mentioning peanuts! This peanut butter stuffed banana bites recipe is one of our most popular peanut desserts. You can whip up these treats using just a few ingredients, melted chocolate and chopped nuts for the ultimate impresive presentation.
