Sweet Spiced Nuts

Need something quick as an appetizer for your Holiday Parties/Dinners?  Nuts are great.  They are quick, easy, and you can make them sweet, spicy, or both.

Today's recipe is for Sweet Spiced Nuts.  Three cups of assorted mixed nuts are first coated with a beaten eggs white, then tossed with sugar and spices.  Add a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce and they are ready to be spooned onto a prepared baking sheet.  They are baked in a 275 degree F oven for about 35 minutes.  Let them cool and then break them into pieces and serve.

These nuts have a wonderful sweet cinnamon taste with just a hint of spice.  A great addition to any Holiday event or just for yourself:)

  1. I really need to spice me up some nuts, Geraldine. I've been eating a lot of nuts with my new dietsry changes because they are so healthy and good for cholesterol. Although I love them "plain", spicing them up would be nice too. Perhaps after Thanksgiving I'll get around to it, lol...

    Thank you so much for sharing, Geraldine...Happy Thanksgiving!!!
