It all started with the Sherry Walnut. They were a Christmas tradition for Aimee's family in the 80's and 90's. Grandmother Steel (aka: "Dot") would only make them at the holidays and so they were rationed accordingly to savor the sweet treat through the new year. For years, Dot refused to give up the recipe, but once she finally relented, her granddaughter Aimee began making them for friends, coworkers and family. The feedback was tremendous and the message was consistent: sell them. So after careful consideration and finding commercial kitchen space, Aimee teamed with her mother Millie, and in late 2009, The Dressed Up Nut was cracked.
Millie and Aimee are very particular, so what you see and taste has been carefully vetted for flavor and quality. Try any of them on a salad for a sweet or zesty crunch. Add the sherry walnuts to your pancake batter for a twist on an old favorite. Chop up the bourbon pecans and add to a variety of sweet potato dishes for a spicy, crunchy contrast. And don’t be surprised if you find that these nuts become your favorite snack:
