Spiced nuts

January 1, 2013 Leave a comment

I am a horrible cookie baker, although sometimes I luck out. Usually I don’t. Because of that, I am always on the lookout for recipes for things I can make instead when I am invited to a cookie swap or asked to help with a bake sale. I always have cakes and cupcakes, but sometimes I want something else. I found something else to add to that list. The bonus is that they smell amazing!

spiced nuts

1 egg white
1 tbsp water
3 cups nuts of your choice (I used walnuts)
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In medium mixing bowl, whisk egg white and water. Add nuts and stir to coat.

In small bowl, mix sugar, salt, and spice. Pour over nuts and stir well to coat.

Spread nuts on foil lined baking sheet. Bake for a total of 28 minutes, but take pan out and stir nuts every 7 minutes. Watch carefully, as sugar can burn quickly.

Remove foil with nuts from cookie sheet and allow to cool on counter, then serve or package, depending on your plans for them.
