Toast with Sticky Maple-Cardamom Walnuts and Almond Cream Cheese Spread

"There’s tiny ecstasy to be found in high-impact toast toppers on rushed mornings. A recent favorite: sticky maple-cardamom walnuts. Perched atop thick slabs of seedy sourdough with a base layer of non-dairy cream cheese style spread. (Just be prepared for the luring scent of sticky buns to come wafting through your kitchen.)"
