Sweet and Salty Cinnamon Nuts

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chef Schellies

This is one of my favorite recipes to make when I need to make a snack really quick. I have made these nuts a couple of times and packaged them for Christmas gifts. They also make a good snack on a cold evening. I often make a double batch and use both pecans and walnuts. Salt can be varied depending on how salty you would like them to be. This recipe was originally from a really old Betty Crocker cookbook, but I varied it a little.

These were fabulous. I like the fact I did not have to keep turning like other recipes. My guests loved them. Thanks.
