For his 1993 inauguration, President Bill Clinton ordered a half ton of these sweet and crunchy almonds! They were nicknamed the president's snack of choice, so many people tried them. You and your family will likely find them irresistible as well.—Almond Board of California, California
To tell the truth, I can't recall where this recipe came from. It's been a regular in my holiday baking, though, for many years. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, I hand these out to almost everybody—even the mailman's been known to find a batch in the mailbox!
I moved from a big city as a bride. My husband soon persuaded me to enter baked goods at our county fair—now, our son, 8, is my cookie tester, and our daughter, 6, is the egg beater.
Here is a treat enjoyed by people of all ages. Spiced pecans are nice to have on hand during the Christmas season - to serve as an appetizer or add to your cookie plate, or to give as gifts packaged in decorated jars or containers! I love making foods that will delight my family or guests.
If watching baseball makes you crave peanuts, try this spiced up snack. I love how quick and easy it is to put together. And it's always fun to see your guests reaching for more. —Brenda Caughell, Durham, North Carolina
My Aunt Mary started making this recipe years ago, and each time we visited her she would have a batch ready for us. The use of cayenne adds an unexpected zing to the savory combo of rosemary and walnuts. When you need a good housewarming or hostess gift, double the batch and save one for yourself. —Renee Ciancio, New Bern, North Carolina
