NOTE: Leave out the ground cloves or just use a little – it was a bit much for my family. Love these though and this recipe is from my very sweet sister-in-law!
1 egg white
1 teaspoon water
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves (use less)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 cups walnuts or pecans
Beat egg white with water until stiff.
Combine spices in a second bowl
Pour nuts into egg white, toss to coat, then pour nuts into spice mixture and toss again. Spread on greased cookie sheet, separating pieces as much as possible. Bake in a 275-degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool, separating nuts again if necessary and store in airtight container.
