    These were fantastic!!! I must admit when I read the ingredients I was a little hesitant. But also intriged. I'm so glad I took the dive and tried them. Not too sweet, not too spicy...a great snack. Sent for the Holiday Cookie Exchange 2009

    These are fabulous little gems of salty sweet goodness. I used a special Paprika a friend brought back to me from her travels to Hungary. I lined my cookie sheet with foil, and it was a good thing I did because I answered the phone while my nuts were in the oven. YOu guessed it, I forgot about them so they got a little extra toasty and the sugar coating came off a bit. If you pay attention while in the oven, I don't think you will have that problem. Great Recipe Boo! Made for ZWT 5 by an Epicurean Queen.
