Spiced Roasted NutsCuisinart Original Recipe
nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup raw pecans
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup unsalted, shelled pistachios
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup raw walnuts
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coat a 9” square pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Toss nuts together in a mixing bowl; reserve.
Place butter in a large microwave safe measuring cup, cover and place in the Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill. Microwave on half power (PL 5) for 30 seconds; continue to microwave if necessary using 10-second increments until melted. Once melted, stir the maple syrup and spices in with the butter. Pour over nuts and toss ingredients together so that all of the nuts are well coated. Pour nuts into the prepared pan.
Preheat oven to 350°F on the convection setting. Place pan on the grill rack in the lower rack position. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes; toss nuts and then bake for an additional 10 minutes. Toss nuts again and bake for an additional 5 minutes if necessary.
Allow nuts cool completely before serving.
