Is it possible to use a different nut in the recipe? I am allergic to peanuts, almonds and walnuts. For some reason I can eat pecans and cashews. So can either of those be used?

Hi there! While the Test Kitchen has not made this recipe using pecans or cashews, we do believe that it is an acceptable substitution. Enjoy!
