Cinnamon Sugar Nuts Recipe

These are not your typical sugar coated or candy coated nuts, just so you know. They have a hint of cinnamon and a hint of sweet but they are not covered with a thick sugar coating. It would be easy enough to add more sugar if you are looking for that sweeter flavor. We, however, really like the flavor and hint of cinnamon sugar that this recipe gives. We came up with it when we were looking at a spiced nuts recipe and it just didn’t sound good to Miss L. She wanted a sweet recipe. So, we used the base of the other (butter with a few teaspoons of various spices) and made up our own recipe. It is yummy and boy does the house smell terrific!

Cinnamon Sugar Nuts

Ingredients:

4 T butter or margarine
1 t vanilla
4 T brown sugar
1 T cinnamon
4 C nuts (we used 2 cups pecan halves and 2 cups whole almonds)

Directions:

Heat oven to 325 degrees.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. When melted, turn to low. Add vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well and allow to simmer for just a few minutes over low heat. Pour over nuts in a large mixing bowl and stir until all nuts are well coated

In a baking pan, place the nuts in a single layer. Toast for 10 minutes in the over. Turn out and shift around. Return to oven for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Enjoy!

Blessings,
At Home.
