DIRECTIONS

  • First, roast the cashews on a cookie tray at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Test one of the nuts if you're not sure.
  • While you're roasting the nuts, mix the maple syrup, cinnamon, margarine, and salt in a microwave-safe cup or bowl.
  • Microwave the mixture until it boils, which should be around a minute.
  • When the nuts are ready, take them out of the oven and pour them into the bowl containing the syrup mixture.
  • Mix them around until they're moderately coated with syrup.
  • (The syrup might not stick completely, but that's okay; you can sprinkle some on the nuts once you put them back on the pan.) At this point, you'll need to spray the tray with the non-stick spray.
  • Pour the nuts back onto the tray.
  • It's a good idea to spoon them back on the tray, as there may be leftover syrup in the bottom of the bowl, and you don't want that to end up in a pile on the tray.
  • Continue roasting the nuts for 15 minutes more.
  • You can turn the temperature down to 300 or 325 degrees at this point.
  • Be sure to check them every once and a while- I use a toaster oven for this, and your cooking time may vary.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
  • Wait for the nuts to cool and the syrup to harden, and then remove them with a spatula.
