Glazed Walnuts. A gift.
« on: November 07, 2014, 05:14:11 am »
This recipe is dedicated to Katie, Cookie and Bedlam ,  who are great problem solvers.   I bought a small bag of nuts at the Salamanca Market and adapted the idea to use coffee instead of Cardamon.

300g good fresh walnut halves or pieces.
1 egg white
Pinch of cinnamon
1 rounded dessertspoon of granular instant coffee.
 1/4 cup of Raw caster sugar.
Pinch of salt

 Set oven at 160 o C FF

Place butterfly in TMX bowl , add egg white and beat until frothy.
Add rest of ingredients EXCEPT walnuts.
Mix on speed 3  1/2 until well mixed.
Add walnuts to bowl and with spatula mix nuts into coffee mix until all well coated.
Spread on to lined oven tray, separating nuts so not stuck together. May need 2 trays.
Bake in preheated oven for 6 minutes.
Remove from oven and turn over nuts. Separate again. Return to oven until not sticky to touch. About 7 minutes.
Allow to cool on tray.  
Will keep for 2 to 3 weeks in an air tight container, out of fridge.

Notes
Ideal Xmas gift.  100g a good gift size.  I paid $6 for 60 g.
Could replace Coffee with Cardamon or other spice mix.

That sounds great.  Sorely tempted to try with a spice mix as well.

Oh thanks Chookie. I have never had a recipe dedicated to me, I am honoured.
I will definitely have to make these. I think DH will love them.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

My pleasure Cookie.  The trouble you had with Tapatalk was exactly the same with me,  except you moved on.  I had to re register with Google but resisted as I thought they wanted too much info.  Had to give in ,  in the end.
