Nuts are always welcome on a buffet table. Switch up the kind to please all your guest. Grab a handful and enjoy. In moderation, nuts are good for us.............

Sweet Spiced Nuts

Food Network Magazine
November 2009

1 large egg white & 1 Tbsp of water
2/3 cups sugar
11/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or chai spice blend
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups assorted mixed nuts
  I used one container 18.25 ounce can of Planters Deluxe Mixed nuts
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl whisk the egg white and the water till frothy.
3. Using a large plastic storage bag add the sugar, salt, pie spice and pepper. Add the few drops of Worcestershire sauce and squeeze with fingers to blend this all together.
4. Add the nuts to the whisked egg wash and mix to coat the nuts. Add the nuts to the plastic bag and seal the bag and shake, rattle and roll the bag to coat the nuts.
5. Remove the coated nuts from the plastic bag and place on the parchment paper and bake at 275 for about 30 -35 minutes. Cool completely then break into pieces.


  1. I love spiced nuts. Yours turned out delicious looking.

  2. I have never heard of pumpkin pie spice in a nut mix. What a great idea.
