Festive Holiday Nuts

These were super-easy, and super-delicious!  I made them along with some other hors d'oeuvres the other night, and will certainly make them again when I go home for Christmas!  A good idea is to triple this recipe and put the nuts in cute bags or containers and give them for holiday gifts (hairdresser, cleaning service, teacher, boss, etc).

1 8oz container unsalted mixed nuts
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Tsp ground cloves
1/2 Tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 Tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 Tsp salt
1 Large egg white
1/2 Cup dried cherries


Preheat the oven to 350.  Combine the sugar, salt and spices in a bowl and set aside.  In a separate bowl, mix the nuts in the egg white.  Then toss the nuts in the dry ingredients.

Spread the nuts on a baking sheet, trying to spread them apart.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Scrape the nuts with a metal spatula, and bake an additional 5 minutes until dry.  Let cool.  Toss nuts with dried cherries.
