Celiac.com 12/21/2016 - Here's an easy, tasty recipe for those sugar-glazed holiday nuts that everyone's always going so crazy about.
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoon water
- 1 pound pecan halves
- ½ pound cashews
- ½ pound almonds
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, to taste
Heat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Grease one baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg whites and water until frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Add nuts to egg whites, stir to coat the nuts evenly.
Remove the nuts, and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated.
Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.
Remove and place onto a wax paper, or paper towel-covered pan or plate.
Allow to cool sufficiently before serving.
