    Pumpkin Pie Spiced Nut Mix
    3 egg whites
    2 teaspoons water
    2 (12 ounce) cans peanuts
    1 cup whole blanched almonds
    1 cup walnut halves
    1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
    3 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup raisins (can be omitted)

    In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites and water until frothy. Add nuts; stir gently to coat.

    Combine sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt; add to nut mixture and stir gently to coat. Fold in raisins. Spread into two greased 15 x 10-inch baking pans. Bake, uncovered at 300 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool.

    Store in an airtight container.

    Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
    1 cup pumpkin seeds from 1 (5 to 7 pound) pumpkin
    5 tablespoons Splenda, divided
    1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    Pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
    1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil

    Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Cut pumpkin open from the bottom, removing seeds with a long-handled spoon. Separate flesh from and discard. Spread seeds on parchment in an even layer. Bake until dry, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour. Let cool.

    In a medium bowl combine 3 tablespoons of the sugar, salt, cumin, cinnamon, ginger and cayenne

    Heat peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pumpkin seeds and the 2 tablespoons sugar. Cook until sugar melts and the pumpkin seeds begin to caramelize, about 45 to 60 seconds. Transfer to bowl with spices and stir well to coat. Let cool.

    These may be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

    Makes about 1 cup.


    Tabasco Almonds
    2 cups raw whole almonds, blanched or skin-on
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce (any variety)
    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

    Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

    Place all the ingredients except the salt in a large bowl and toss until the nuts are well-coated. Transfer nuts to prepared cookie sheet and arrange in a single layer. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until the nuts are darkened but not burnt - about 45 minutes.

    Remove from oven and immediately loosen the nuts with a metal spatula.
