They have a wonderful sweet and savory taste with just a bit of heat from the cayenne pepper. Perfect!! I did make a few changes.
I didn't have the nuts used in the original recipe so I had to go with what I had on hand,which was still great! I used sliced almonds ( rather than whole) and pecan and walnut halves.
I also only had garlic powder, rather than garlic salt so I added a pinch of salt.
Liberally spray a baking sheet with veg. oil spray. Spread a single layer of nuts into pan. Bake for 45 minutes. ( I stirred once or twice during the baking.)
Beautiful!! They come out all crunchy and yummy. So go make some...right now!! And make yourself a drink to go with it... It's 5 o'clock somewhere!!
