        I could not keep my husbands hands off the warm nuts when they came out of the oven :} so I wish I had made more. I did not have a sherry vinegar so I used a pear vinegar that I got from a farmers market and it was delicious, so other vinegars might work well. I picked this recipe because I Love Gorgonzola and I will definatly keep this recipe at hand.
