Pecan Nut Streusel

Here's something sweet to finish off this week. Per and I have both caught colds and have spent most of the weekend sniffling on the couch, watching movies. Nothing wrong with that!

This is a great topping for ice cream, and it's especially good with strawberries, if you can find them anymore. I know I'm a little late in posting this. And if you cant find pecans, substitute walnuts. That'll be great too. In fact, I bet it's nice with hazelnuts, too. Any leftovers - ha, ha - will keep well in the fridge for at least a few weeks.

Pecan Nut Streusel

1,5 dl (1/2 cup plus about 2 tbsp) pecans
50 g butter
2 dl (0,85 cups) rolled oats
1 dl (0,4 cups) sugar
1-2 tbsp maple syrup

Chop the nuts coarsely. Let the butter melt in a large pan, and fry the rolled oats until they get some color. Add the nuts, and fry for an additional minute. Stir in sugar and syrup, and stir until the sugar is melted. Serve with ice cream.

Isn't it great being sick as a couple so you can loll around watching movies together instead of wallowing in self pity on your lonesome?

hope you are feeling better, sounds like that streudel would make anyone better!
