Fall is in the air, and with it comes the sweet and warm flavor of these Pumpkin Spiced Nuts.
Pumpkin spice is synonymous with fall, and for good reason. Warm brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice create a fragrant bouquet that usher in cooler weather and falling leaves. Using a spice mix is an easy shortcut for these pumpkin pie spiced nuts. Not only are they a breeze to make, your kitchen will instantly fill with autumnal aromatics. You always know when people are selling spiced nuts at a festival or in the mall for the holidays. It’s that delectable caramelization that happens when sugar and nuts are roasted together. Not only are they are delicious to snack on, but with simple packaging they would also make a lovely gift.
