Ingredients

Holiday Pie Spice Blend:

6 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Kosher salt

Nuts:

Vegetable oil, for oiling the baking sheet

1 large egg white

4 cups unsalted raw hazelnuts

Directions

  1. Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a small bowl and set aside.

For the nuts: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Put the egg white in a large bowl and whisk until frothy. Add the hazelnuts and toss to coat in the egg white. Add the spice blend and toss to coat again.
  3. Spread the nut mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet and bake, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet, then transfer to a large bowl.
