Getting nutty

I decided that I wanted to try something a new for a snack on Thanksgiving so I board through my starred recipes on my Google Reader. After combing through every delicious recipe that I have marked from all of the blogs from the ladies on the WC board, I decided to make the Holiday Spiced Nuts from Bean's Bistro. I'd never had spiced nuts but thought they sounded really good and the local grocery store had nuts on sale, perfect timing!

These were incredibly easy to make, took almost no time at all, made the house smell incredible, and tasted great. Everyone who tried them has already asked me to make them again and I've decided they are being added to the holiday gift baskets.

Spiced Nuts

1 Egg White
1-2 tsp. Water
3/4 C. White Sugar
1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp. Salt
2-2 1/2 C. Plain Dry Roasted Peanuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together egg white and water until good and foamy.
Fold in the sugar, pumpkin spice, and salt. Blend until consistent.
Stir in peanuts to coat.
On a cookie sheet, pour out the coated peanuts in a flat layer. Any remaining glaze should be poured on the nuts.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and IMMEDIATELY pour into a bowl. Break apart the nuts. As they cool, occasionally stir to keep large hunks to a minimum. Allow to cool before eating.
