      1/2  cup           Sugar
    3      tablespoon    Water
      1/3  cup           Pine nuts
    1      cup           Whipping cream
                         well chilled
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla extract

 Preparation time: 15 minutes.  Cooking time: 5 minutes.  Vanilla yogurt can be
used in place of whipped cream.  1.  Lightly oil a flat baking sheet.
 Put the sugar in a small heavy saucepan; drizzle water over and swirl the pan so
all the sugar is moistened.
 Cook over medium-high heat, watching closely, until sugar is melted and mixture
is a rich medium brown.
 Add pine nuts and remove from heat.  Immediately pour onto baking sheet and cool
completely.  2.  Break cooled nut mixture into pieces. Grind to a powder in a
food processor or blender.  3.	Whip cream until it holds soft peaks.  Mix in
vanilla and half of ground nut mixture.  4.  To serve, place a spoonful of
whipped cream into serving bowls; top with berries and a small sprinkling of nut
powder.  Chicago Tribune, 08/05/93.
