Sweet Spiced Nuts

These were a total hit, and super easy to boot. They came from a recipe featured in the latest issue of Food Network Magazine. I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, so I used a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Also, to add some extra kick, I used about 1 teaspoon of chipotle powder instead of the cayenne pepper in the original recipe. The result was a sweet, crunchy, not too spicy snack.



  • 1 large egg white
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie or chai spice blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 cups assorted mixed nuts
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce



  1. Preheat the oven to 275. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk the egg white with 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl until frothy. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, the spice blend and cayenne pepper. Toss the nuts in the egg white mixture, then stir in the sugar-spice mixture and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Spoon the nuts onto the prepared baking sheet in small clusters and bake until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely, then break into pieces.
