Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces walnuts (about one heaping cup; don't use pieces)
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the sugar, cayenne and salt.

Bring a small saucepan of water to boil. Add the walnuts and blanch them for 3 minutes. Drain well and then immediately roll the walnuts in the sugar mixture until thoroughly coated. The sugar will melt slightly. Transfer the walnuts to a baking sheet or pan and bake, stirring occasionally, until they are a deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Watch carefully because the sugar can burn easily. Let cool completely before serving.
