Another year, another gingerbread recipe. This time we’re going nuts. Gingerbread Spiced Nuts to be exact. Pecans and almonds are tossed with some pretzels and baked up to a salty/sweet snack with a hint of the spices of the season.
Gingerbread Spiced Nuts
1 egg white
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons gingerbread spice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/3 cups pecans
1 1/3 cups almonds
1 1/3 cups pretzels
Whisk 1 egg white with 1/4 cup light brown sugar, 2 teaspoons gingerbread spice, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon each paprika and pepper. Add 1 1/3 cups each pecans and almonds; toss. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 325˚, stirring every 10 minutes, until mostly dry but still slightly sticky, about 25 minutes; add 1 1/3 cups sesame sticks during the last 5 minutes of baking. Let cool.

I needed something catchy to celebrate the day. Definitely don’t want to let my little blog go. Here’s to another year together, friends.
