Reply to "Favorite baking nut?"

For baking I prefer something that stays crunchy, so while I like pecans, they're way down the list for baking purposes. Macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts would be my choices long before pecans and pistachios and pine nuts, although I actually like all of them. Peanuts too, although I guess they're not really nuts.

If you're grinding them to a powder however, for some kind of cake or for a pastry filling, it makes less difference and I'd use any of them.
