• 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • 4 cups unsalted pecans, walnuts, almonds, or mixed nuts

The perfect appetizer at any holiday gathering, a great gift for a friend, or a go-to snack when unexpected company arrives, my Spiced Nuts will please everyone! I love using them in place of croutons in salads of all kinds, too!

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Beat egg whites lightly with salt. Sift together sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice and mix well. Add pecans to egg whites and coat completely. Transfer pecans to cinnamon sugar mixture. Coat pecans completely and place in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until sugar coating on nuts is crisp. Cool and serve or store in an airtight container.
