First, the Portland Mercury mentioned these Cherry-Nut Mudslides. Pistachios, hazelnuts, cherries and chocolate, all in one incredible disc of pure yum.
And as I was gushing over the mudslides to Lise, she said, “That reminds me of the earthquake cookies at Crema.” So I looked them up. And after learning about their delectably delicate cracked surfaces (reminiscent of fault lines, hence the name), I searched for a recipe and found one simple enough for even Lise to make!
