They Can’t Take That Away From Me is a Gerschwin song that was originally written in 1937 for Fred Astaire to perform in Shallot We Dance? The list of performers who have recorded the song since then is immense. Obviously Frank Sinatra couldn’t leave it alone, but nor could anyone else, it seems! Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Shirley Bassey, Ray Charles, Perry Como, Harry Connick Jr., Tony Bennett, Rod Stewart, Lisa Stansfield, Van Morrison, Seal, Robbie Williams, Gloria Estefan to name but a few. (Call that a few…? Ed) And let’s not forget the Nancy Walker and Sweetums version on The Muppet Show.

 

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no they can’t take that away from me

It also appeared in Crazy For You, which opened on Broadway in 1992 – and is a show that we’ve featured many times on the blog! Check out Caprese For You, Butternut For Me, Shallot We Dance, and Curd You Use Me?

This is a SUPER easy, three-ingredient cookie recipe. These cookies are really tasty – and no, you can’t take them away from me!

Finely grind some chopped pecans – I use the attachment on my stick blender for this! Mix them together with a beaten egg and some sugar (or sweetener, if you prefer). Divide the mixture into 12 piles on a lined baking sheet, and bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Leave to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
