Cinnamon-Spiced Roasted Walnuts
Source of Recipe
This recipe has it all: sweet, spicy, slightly salty, and oh-so crunchy. It's also versatile, because you can easily swap the walnuts for pecans or almonds. As for baking up these beauties, keep a watchful eye, because the nuts can go from golden to burned in a matter of a minute or two!
List of Ingredients
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 pound walnut halves (about 4 cups)
¼ cup brown sugar
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly oil or coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. For easier clean up, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and then coat with cooking spray.
Whisk together the egg white and water in a large bowl until well blended. Add the walnuts and toss to coat evenly with the egg white mixture.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, allspice, and ginger, and sprinkle over the nuts. Toss until well coated.
Spread the nuts in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, and bake until the glaze is crisp and golden brown, 15 minutes. Toss and cook 3 to 5 more minutes until even more golden, as desired. Remove from the oven, toss, and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
