These sweet, spicy, slightly salty nuts make a great snack, appetizer and garnish for salads and desserts. Once cooled, they'll keep in an airtight container for a week or two.
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 egg white
- 4 cups mixed nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds and/or pistachios)
Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk sugar, salt, cinnamon, chili powder, allspice and cayenne in a small bowl. Whisk egg white until light and frothy in a large bowl. Add nuts to egg white and toss until evenly coated. Sprinkle sugar mixture over nuts and toss well to combine. Spread nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake until dry, 40 to 50 minutes, stirring once or twice. Cool to room temperature before storing in an airtight container.
