SWEET & SPICY ROASTED NUTS

Basically these are what you can get at the fair, without having to go to the fair. They pair exceptionally well with that grown up snack dinner also known as a "cheese plate."

Sweet & Spicy Roasted Nuts

WHAT YOU NEED:

1/3 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 egg white

1 tablespoon water

1 pound mixed nuts (I used pecans, cashews, walnuts and pistachios)

HOW TO:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugars, cinnamon, salt and cayenne pepper. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg white and water until frothy. Add the nuts and sugar mixture, and stir until evenly coated. 
  4. Spread the nuts in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stopping to stir and separate the nuts twice during baking. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
