Kid's cooking birthday party

"The girls had a blast! You were so organized and under control my husband and I were amazed. I had 1 parent call and said her daughter had such a great time and couldn't wait to make the meal for her family. We had never done a party like this and it was a great experience. The personal touches using Haley's favorite colors and personalizing the recipes with her hobbies gave it that little extra and Haley really felt special."

Spiced Nuts

© 1999 "So Easy, So Delicious"
1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
3 C (12 oz) hazelnuts, almonds or pecans
1 egg white, lightly beaten

Combine sugar and spices. Toss nuts around in egg white until well coated. Then roll in sugar and spice mixture. Spread on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes, shaking pan a few times. When nuts are removed from oven, use a fork to separate them. Cool on a wire rack.

Yield: spiced nuts to fill (4) 8-ounce jars

: You can use a combination of nuts if you like. These are delicious to serve along with hors d’oeuvres or they can be served with dessert. If placed in decorative jars or tins, they make wonderful gifts.
