Finding THE nuts
Own own local finalist, Linda Bibbo of Bainbridge Township, also had problems locating the Fisher Butter Toffee Peanuts in her Caramel Latte Crunch Cups.
"Would you believe?" she told me. "I finally found them at Staples, of all places."
I'm quite sure that any old dry roasted peanuts would substitute quite nicely in the peanut butter cookie recipe. But one never knows. I was quite surprised, for instance, at how good the cookies really are. And could be it's just the way the ingredients combine tha made it a winner.
So I rifled through my inch-thick package of press material I brought back from Dallas and found the name of the Fisher spokeswoman. I've now e-mailed and left a phone message asking her the big question:
Where in Lake and Geauga counties are these nuts sold?
