    Roasted Spiced Nuts

    Another take on a delicious classic. This one comes with a disclaimer: "Nuts will burn quickly in the oven or on the stovetop. Do not try to multitask while toasting nuts."
    • 6 tablespoons melted butter
    • 2 teaspoons Tabasco
    • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
    • 4 cups pecan halves

      1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
      2. Mix butter, Tabasco, Cajun seasoning, cinnamon, cumin, and ginger in a large mixing bowl.
      3. Add pecans and toss to coat.
      4. Spread pecans in a single layer on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes and again at 8 minutes.
      "Spiced nuts will keep, tightly covered, for several weeks, assuming no one knows where you've hidden them." -- says the recipe courtesy of Dennis and Pam Boettcher.
