These sound so good! We aren't huge fans of liquid smoke. Like the smell makes me gag!! Do you think I could omit it??

Sure!  Just up the Worcestershire sauce to 2 Tablespoons.  The original recipe I adapted mine from didn't call for the smoke, just the Worcestershire.  I wanted the almonds to have a hint of smoke with the chili powder, but didn't want to ruin the ration of wet ingredients, so that's where I scaled back from the original recipe I adapted. 

Also good to note, you may want to sprinkle a bit of salt or kosher salt onto yours just before baking.  My husband doesn't like things too salty, so I scaled back a bit.  Smiley

Darling pottermouth, you are both amazing, and insane.  Wink  Seriously though, I love the attention to detail in your miniatures.  The extra mile you go in making each teeny tiny flower brings each one to life in a way store bought miniatures never could.

Project Name & Link:  Vanilla Spice Nut Mix  and Toasted Chili Almonds

Brief Description: I made two appetizers to bring to our Friendsgiving celebration.  And the recipes actually made so much that I was able to package some up as a gift to share with our neighbors as well.  Smiley

I don't know which recipe looks better.  I might just have to make them both. Cheesy

They are both really easy, and I made both in less than an hour, while doing other things like emptying the dishwasher, printing out the rest of the recipes I'm making, etc.  I recommend Aldi for buying nuts, if you're going to make a lot of them, as their prices are pretty darn good.  Smiley

Very beautiful!  I love the colors you've chosen.  Someday if you ever get the chance, I'd love to see what they look like in someone's hair.  Cheesy

I'm getting ready for Thanksgiving with friends at their home tomorrow, and I decided to start some of my dishes early.  I made two types of nuts as part of our appetizers, one sweet and one savory, but both can also be packed up as gifts for friends and neighbors.  Since I'm a baby who doesn't like things very hot, these are mild but you can easily kick up the heat by adding some cayenne pepper.  Here's a link to the companion Vanilla Spiced Nut Mix.



Toasted Chili Almonds


Ingredients
2 T margarine
1 3/4 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
dash or cayenne pepper (optional)
2 3/4 cups almonds (14 oz.)


Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  

Melt the margarine in a large microwave safe bowl.  

Whisk in the spices, liquid smoke & Worcestershire sauce.  Mix in the nuts and stir very well to evenly coat.

Spread the nuts on a sheet pan, and bake for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spread the hot nuts out on a piece of parchment paper to cool, then store in an airtight container.

I'm getting ready for Thanksgiving with friends at their home tomorrow, and I decided to start some of my dishes early.  I made two types of nuts as part of our appetizers, one sweet and one savory, but both can also be packed up as gifts for friends and neighbors.  These are sweet, but if you are trying to watch your sugar you can easily cut it down to 3/4 or even 1/2 cup of combined sugars. Here's a link to the companion Toasted Chili Almonds.



Vanilla Spice Nut Mix

Ingredients
3 cups walnuts
2 cups pecan halves
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg white

Directions
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Lightly grease a baking sheet, and put aside.

Whisk the egg white with the teaspoon of vanilla, and set aside.

Combine the sugars, spices, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well.  Set aside.

Mix the nuts in a large bowl.  Pour on the egg white & vanilla mix.  Stir very well to evenly coat the nuts.  

Sprinkle on half of the sugar, stir well, then pour in the rest of the sugar.  Continue stirring to coat the nuts evenly.

Pour the sugared nuts evenly onto the sheet pan, and bake for 20 minutes.  

Remove from the oven, and spread the hot nuts out on a piece of parchment paper to cool, then store in an airtight container.
