Excellent flavor! I tripled the recipe and used only pecan halves. I also added the salt in with the other spices and omitted the raisins. Baking time ended up being approximately 40 minutes to achieve a crunchy texture. Read More

Maybe it's just me but I was not impressed with the taste of these nuts at all. No burst of flavor. Just cinnamon and sugar coated nuts. Did not bother with the raisins. Just OK if you're looking for flavored nuts. Read More

These are very good. I would cut back a bit on the cooking time they tasted like the sugar burned slightly. I added dried cranberries instead of raisins. Read More

Delicious! I would recommend adding a dash of vanilla extract to your egg whites. Also don't bake them too long because they'll get a funny burnt taste! Read More

Very easy and tasty recipe. It also makes the kitchen smell great! I didn't add raisins. A 20 minute baking time was enough to make them crispy in my oven. Read More

didn't care for these at all! I'm normally a fan of spiced nuts but didn't care for the flavor of these. Cooking time was also off. Nuts weren't done at time stated in recipe. I'll try another recipe. I wouldn't use this recipe again. Sorry! Read More

I doubled the recipe and used only walnut halves for a movie night at our neighbor's home recently. Everyone loved them! I didn't bring any home... Read More
