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!
|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!
