1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Nuts:

Vegetable oil, for oiling the baking sheet

1 large egg white

1 cup unsalted raw cashews

1 cup unsalted raw peanuts

1 cup unsalted raw pecans

1 cup unsalted raw walnuts

1 cup dried cranberries

Directions

  1. For the cocktail spice blend: Mix together the sugar, paprika, thyme, mustard, cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. For the nuts: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Put the egg white in a large bowl and whisk until frothy. Add the cashews, peanuts, pecans and walnuts and toss to coat in the egg white. Add the spice blend and toss to coat again.
