Roasted spiced nuts

These nuts are a terrific nibble with drinks. I also love these as an accompaniment with some composed salads. Either way they are a taste treat!

Here is my recipe

4 cups walnut or pecan halves
1 egg white

4 tsps. light brown sugar
2 tsps. smoked paprika
2 tsps. cumin
2 tsps. dried thyme leaves
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the egg white with the nuts by tossing the egg white onto the nuts until thoroughly combined with your hands.
Combine the spices together in a small bowl and then toss with your hands until the nuts are coated evenly with the spices.
Place on a sheet pan and roast for 6-8 minutes. Toss the nuts with a metal spatula. Continue roasting until the nuts are golden brown for a total of 12-15 minutes.
The nuts will crisp up as they cool.
