    Abundance of slivered almonds

    My neighbor brought over 2 quart Ziploc bags full of roasted slivered almonds. Does anyone have ideas on what to do with those, streusel and green beans are the usual suspects here. Could I make an almond pie with the pecan pie base? I Probably have around 1.5 pounds here so I am open to anything really.

    Thanks

    How about making a batch of sweet & spicy candied almonds, pesto with almonds instead of pine nuts, granola with almonds or almond brittle?

    Pesto was my first thought. You can also make almond milk, almond "flour", or almond brittle

    I use ground nuts and nut pastes in curries. usually cashews, but almonds would be a good twist. they go well in recipes with coconut milk. good in stir fries too.

    you could make a version of horchata, which is basically very sweet rice or almond milk with cinnamon. makes a great holiday drink!

    If you like garlic, ajo blanco http://spanishfood.about.com/od/soup...eajoblanco.htm Traditionally with blanched almonds, but I don't think the toasty note hurts one bit.

    I like the pralines idea. Trail mix. Ice cream topping.
