Excellent choice for gift giving. Your favorite nut can be substituted.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift confectioner's sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and salt into a medium size bowl; stir in orange rind.
  2. Beat egg whites and orange juice until slightly foamy; stir in walnuts; toss to coat well; drain thoroughly.
  3. Roll walnuts in sugar mixture, a third at a time, until evenly coated. Spread out on two parchment paper lined jelly-roll pans so the nuts do not touch.
  4. Bake at 250º for about 1 hour or until dry. Cool completely before storing in a tightly covered container.
  5. Walnuts may be stored for up to 1 month.

Great recipe! This was very easy to make and makes very delicious nuts. I used meringue powder instead of actual egg whites, which calls for 2 tsp of powder + 2 tbsp of water to recreate 1 egg white. Next time I will sub all the water with orange juice to increase the orange flavor.

I'm nuts for these nuts! Very easy to make and so yummy I couldn't stop eating them. I didn't have an orange so I used granulated dry orange peel. When I make these again I will be sure to use grated orange peel.
