Pumpkin Pie Spiced and Sugared Nuts

Oh my goodness, these are so good! I saw the idea in a book, but no recipe, so I found an Emeril recipe for spiced nuts and modified it. They turned out so delicious, and they are just perfect for this time of year!

Pin It

Here is what you need:

2 cups of raw nuts (I used 1 cup of pecan halves and 1 cup of whole almonds.)
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
pinch or two of salt

Toast the nuts in a dry pan for about 5 minutes over medium low heat, while stirring so they don’t burn.

When done, pour them into a separate container. Put all the rest of the ingredients in your hot pan, (Be CAREFUL with the water; it spatters.)  and stir for about 2 minutes till it thickens.

Pour the nuts back in the pan and stir well while cooking for 2 minutes more.

Then pour the nuts onto a foil lined cookie sheet, spreading them out, and let sit till cooled.

You’re ready to enjoy!  They are so good and not easy to stop eating!
Keep in a sealed container.

Hope you try them!

Blessings, Margo

  24. Hey!
    Just wanted to let you know that over at createlive, we’re just finishing up a pumpkin recipe series called “The 12 Days of Pumpkins.” For the next few days, we’ll be hosting a link-up, featuring any recipes involving pumpkin, and will be choosing a good number of these recipes to have their own page (which can include your blog name and URL!) in a pumpkin cookbook! Just thought you might be interested in the additional press or being included in a cookbook – and this is a really great recipe! Find the link up here!
    Have a great one :)
