Serious Eats: Talk
What am I thinking of?
I have this idea in my head that I swear I saw a recipe for a long time ago, but the memory is fuzzy. Basically, the thing I'm thinking of is a paste made of dried fruits (prunes, dates, or figs, can't recall exactly) mixed with nuts (want to say hazelnuts or walnuts) and pressed into flat cakes. I seem to recall the recipe suggesting serving it as an accompaniment to a cheese plate, sort of like membrillo paste might be.
