Spiced Nuts

Comment on this recipe

"A very dear friend gave me this recipe several years ago. I have shared it with many friends and everyone loves the results. "The spiced nuts make beautiful Christmas presents. My family prefers the pecans, but the almonds taste just as good."

Ingredients

1 pound almonds or pecans
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves (optional)

Instructions

In small bowl, beat egg white and water until frothy but not stiff. Add nuts, stir until nuts are well coated. In separate bowl, mix sugar and spices together. Add nuts and mix until well coated. Spread evenly on greased cooking sheet. Bake at 225 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
