I really like this recipe! Using egg whites in place of butter/oil really makes this so much sense. Next time I would like to replace the raisins with dried cherries and cranberries just for the fun of it!! Thanks so much for posting.
Really really great!!! I loved these so much, i've been munching on them all day long! I halved the recipe and made my own pumpkin pie spice since i didn't have any, but i had all the spices for it. I had this tub of mixed fancy nuts that i wanted to do something with, so i found this recipe. I used cashews instead of peanuts because i like them better and i even threw in some brasil nuts. I didn't add salt because they were already salted and it turned out great! I accidently forgot the raisins but didn't miss them a bit. Next time i will add them though, just to try it. Thank you for this really tasty recipe!!
PixieDust, these were extremely tasty. Made these to go out as part of Christmas trays to my family. Only good responses. Agree with Aroostook about the egg whites. Made a distinct change from the usual butter or oil. thanks for posting!
