These were pretty good but not much spice stayed on the nuts. It seemed as if most of it drained into the paper towels. I left mine in for 10 minutes and they were crisp but didn't taste very toasty, so I would leave them longer next time. If I can figure out how to keep more spices on the nuts, I will try again. Thanks for posting!
These are very tasty spiced walnuts. I made these for my DH, he picked the recipe. These are great for him being he is a diabetic. They are very easy to make. I baked them for 15 minutes. Thank you Edith, for this tasty recipe.
