It just isn't Christmas at Lori Brouwer's house until these crunchy munchers are in the oven. "The wonderful aroma of ginger, cinnamon and nuts fills the kitchen with festivity when I bake this snack," she confirms from Cumberland, British Columbia.
Each Christmas, I fill jars with these special nuts, tie the top with a piece of colored ribbon and give them away as gifts. Everyone is always pleasantly surprised by their zesty taste.—Becky Cleveland, Waterville, Nova Scotia
This is just great to nibble on and makes a satisfying salty snack. Italian salad dressing mix is the easy secret ingredient—it adds just the right zip to plain mixed nuts! Whenever I set out a bowl of these nuts, they disappear quickly.—Karen Riordan, Fern Creek, Kentucky
