Habit Forming Cinnamon-Sugared Nuts!

Christmas often brought with it these delightful sugared nuts. This recipe started with my Grandmother. It's easy and also makes a great Hostess gift during the Holidays...just be sure to make an extra batch for yourself.

From Collages


2 cups salted nuts mix (a cheap tin of mixed nuts of hazelnuts, almonds, cashews etc works well)
1 egg white, slightly beaten
5 tablespoons white sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup raisins or craisins

  1. In a bowl, combine egg whites and nuts. Make nuts are well coated.
  2. Combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over nuts and again make sure nuts and spice are well coated.
  4. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Stir once or twice while baking.
  6. Remove from oven and stir in raisins/craisins.
  7. Cool and put into container.
