Win With Diamond Nuts

If you love cooking... (and it seems like everyone BUT ME is cooking and baking for the holidays... )
I have something to tell you about.
Diamond Nuts is finalizing the 100th year celebration of 2012 with a contest that is sure to get an entry out of most!  If you cook (or bake, I guess there is a difference, as I know some people love to cook, but hate to bake)  then head on over to the Diamond Nuts Facebook page.

The contest requires that you need to enter a contest that includes...NUTS!
The contest ends on December 21st and there are all sorts of prizes! 
Gift Cards, Electrolux Appliances and many more are items that are up for grabs!!!

Here is a recipe I found on the Diamond Nuts site:
(You can search based on keyword or even nut type.)

This walnut-apple pie has a streusel topping that makes this dessert extraordinary. Serve alone or accompanied with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a sliver of aged cheddar.


Streusel topping
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup California Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • Filling
  • 8 cups thinly sliced apples (Golden Delicious or Northern Spy)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 9-inch deep dish prepared pie crust
  • Directions

    1. In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix together oats, walnuts, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and ginger. Drizzle with butter and combine to form a coarse crumb mixture. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, toss apples with sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger.
    3. Arrange apples in prepared pie crust. Sprinkle walnut streusel over top, completely covering the apples.
    4. Bake pie on a baking sheet, covered loosely with foil in centre of a 375°F oven for 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake until streusel is golden and apples are tender, about 10 minutes more.
    5. Let sit 15 minutes before serving.

    I received a surprise package from Diamond Nuts for posting this and telling you about their contest.


    1. Diamond nuts are a signature around the holidays, aren't they?

    2. Thank you for sharing the recipe, I buy more around the holidays!

    3. I like that you do it in a prepared pie crust. Pie crust is just something I haven't mastered.
