Sugar - Spiced Nuts

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Nikki Kate

I make these for both my father-in-laws (one step) for Christmas!!! They love them, they usually end up taking the leftover home with them. Update 4/24: I made these for my husband but instead of using Pumpkin Pie Spice I substituted Ground Cinnamon. He loved them!!

Made these as a gift for a colleague as a change of pace from the usual cakes and cookies. Instead of canned nuts, I used a mix of pecans, almonds, Brazil nuts and cashews purchased in bulk. More economical and in my area, assures a better quality of nut. Really easy to make, these were in the oven in less than five minutes and the results were divine. Given the flavors of the pumpkin pie spice, I packaged the prepared nuts with dried cranberries. Thanks!
