These spiced walnuts are easy to prepare and bake, and they make a great snack for game days or holiday munching.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 Cups


  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound walnut halves
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash cloves, optional


Heat oven to 325°. Butter a large cookie sheet.

Beat egg white with the water and salt until they look frothy. They will have a mass of tiny clear bubbles. Add the walnut halves to the egg white mixture, coating well.

In another bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and cloves, if using. Add the egg white coated pecans to the sugar mixture and stir until all pieces are well coated.

Spread the walnuts on the prepared cookie sheet and bake at 325° for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned and toasted.

Makes about 4 cups of spiced walnuts.
