Roasted Pine Nut Butter

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Cindy Barr

With pine nuts at $35 per pound, we wondered if it made any sense at all to make a butter out of them. Then we tasted it: the richest, most indulgent nut butter ever, and satisfying in minuscule bits, so that a little 2- or 3-ounce jar makes a fine food gift, like a present of caviar.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon)
