This Thanksgiving, send your guests home with a homemade party favor: Spiced Nuts.
1 large egg white
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups assorted mixed nuts
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Preheat the oven to 275. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk the egg white with 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl until frothy. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, the spice blend and cayenne pepper. Toss the nuts in the egg white mixture, then stir in the sugar-spice mixture and Worcestershire sauce.
Spoon the nuts onto the prepared baking sheet in small clusters and bake until golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely, then break into pieces.
Divide nut clusters into small paper bags or cellophane bags, tie with a ribbon and pass out to guests.
