    If I make these ahead, how to keep them fresh for several days? Is Tupperware good. Will they stay crisp?

    Wonderful protocol for any mix of spices you want to try. I made this with cinnamon, nutmeg, a pinch of ginger and a pinch of Indian "chilly" powder, and incorporated it into a warm goat chease salad. They were in danger of being eaten before the salad was prepped. :)

    I tried this one because of the great reviews ... must say the cumin added a peculiar flavor with a strong bitter after taste. Not a fan so I will not make again. Sorry.

    My Mother made these a couple of Christmas' ago, got recipe out of Bon Appetit. They were addictive! I'm so glad I found the recipe as we couldn't locate. She used Pecans, cashews and almond. I'm making them as gifts for co-workers. Also great sprinkled on top of Brie/Cranberry Pepper Jelly
