"This recipe came from Taste of Home. It is unusual because it uses dried cranberries. Perfect for those holiday meal appetizers."

"Excellent. Nut recipes frequently are "sticky" and these ones are perfect and dry. I used unsalted nuts: peanuts, pistachios and almonds. Also subbed cherries for the cranberries which were fabulous. I upped the cinnamon a bit due to preference. Very nice nut recipe!!!! Made for Bevy Tag. UPDATE: I made this again as a Holiday 2010 gift for friends and co-workers. I made 3 different nut recipes today and this one was by far the best. I actually doubled the cinnamon, added about an extra cup of nuts (cause my egg white was quite big), threw in a few shakes of allspice and used orange flavored dried cranberries (which I did not cook, I just threw in at the end). I also added a sprinkling of turbinado sugar over the top just before cooking. I highly recommend this fancy, tasty and fast recipe."
"I made these this morning as a snack. They are so addictive. My DH loves them too. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"These sugar and spice nuts are AMAZING! I made them yesterday as an appetizer for our early Thanksgiving and my family LOVED them. I gave what little was left to my parents to take home and I'm currently baking another batch per the request of my hubby. The cayenne is very subtle but perfect with the cinnamon. Delicious recipe!"
"This is so delicious. I used a bit more of 1/2 cup of dried cranberries. I used unsalted cashews (everything was unsalted). But next time I will omit cashews for personnal preference ;) Thanks Mary. Made for 123 hit wonders."
"Saw this reviewed this morning - so grabbed a bunch of stuff , to have with drinks,(etc.) Had no cashews, but did use 1 cup of BJ's Mixed Fruit and Nuts, and some dried mango strips. Had a whole jar of dry, unsalted (UGH) roasted peanuts, so in they went ! Just the right amount of a kick -- and flavor. Will do this often. Thanks for posting."
"These of course are fabulous. I've made similar recipes, but wanted to give yours a try also. I followed your recipe exactly as far as the spices go, but used a dried fruit medley by Sunmaid made up of dried blueberries, cherries, cranberries, and plums. Then I used 1 cup mixed nuts in place of the cashews. Worked perfectly. I love the fact of just getting a hint of the cayenne. Glad I tagged this for the Photoforum. !!"
"OMG! Made this with deluxe mixed nuts and Sunmaid dried cranberries & it was sooooo good. Even my husband loved the cranberries spiced this way & I thought he'd pick over them for the nuts. Perfectly spiced with just a touch of heat. Will definitely be making this for the holidays. Thanks!"
