Sweet-Hot Glazed Nuts

Makes 2 cups; 8 servings

Notes: Use hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, blanched almonds, or an assortment.

 3 tablespoons honey
 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  About 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 2 cups shelled, unsalted nuts (whole or halves; see notes)
Step 1

In a bowl, mix honey, sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon. Add nuts and mix well to coat. Scrape nut mixture into a buttered 9- by 13-inch pan and shake to make level.

Step 2

Bake in a 300° oven, shaking pan often, until nuts are golden brown under skins (break to test, if necessary), 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 3

Scrape nuts onto a buttered 10- by 12-inch piece of foil and let cool about 15 minutes, then break apart. Serve, or store airtight up to 3 days.
