Sugar-and-Spice Nuts

My husband picked this off of pinterest.  Our plan for lunches when we have family in town for a big dinner, is to have some meats, cheeses, olives, nuts, hummus, etc... to graze on rather than a proper lunch.  I made these for us to snack on through the family visits.  They are almost gone today, the 26th :).  I adore these nuts!  They are not too hard to make too, but they are sweet and spicy and totally addictive!

Sugar-and-Spice Nuts

3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon chile powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 large egg white
2 cups raw cashews (9 ounces)

2 cups raw almonds (9 ounces)

1. Preheat the oven to 300°. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk the sugar with the salt, chile powder, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. In a large bowl, beat the egg white until frothy. Add the cashews, almonds and spiced sugar and toss. Spread out the nuts on the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, stirring once, until browned. Let the nuts cool on the baking sheet, stirring occasionally.

Make Ahead The spiced nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days
