@lmur,
Not if you want the texture or taste of a nut. Ground nuts act like flour.

@izzythepush,
Many thanks. A trip to the shop then.
First world problems, eh?

@lmur,
I never take a recipe as set in stone. Normally I look up about four or five recipes and make an amalgam of those.

If you don't like the sound of anything replace it with something you do like the sound of. It's your cake.

My wife's actually - if I had my way I'd lace it with some of Morocco's finest.

@lmur,
I make christmas "nut rolls" that use a mixture of coarse ground pecans and shaved pecans . The goal is to make anutty "paste" with which make a rollup filling for thw rolls.

The recipe calls for shaved and my mom, on a blast of insight about fillings, started making the mixture with the dual textures.

Who's to know? Any sleepiness, or merriment, can always be put down to alcohol.

@Tes yeux noirs,
41 years - that's one hell of a memory! Which is ironic, considering...

To be honest, Christmases 1969 through 2006...

@Tes yeux noirs,
I envy you, I spent most of those Christmases in Yorkshire with my teetotal grandmother who had a remarkable knack of sucking the joy out of everything.
