I eliminated the cumin (personal taste), substituted brown sugar, reduced the amount of cayenne to 1/2 tsp; then use the microwave rather than regular oven. Start with 3 minutes and gradually increase until done. They should lose the shine when finished. I have always received rave reviews from friends as I gift them constantly. It's a great way to use up varieties of nuts.
Spiced Nuts -- full of spicy-sweet flavor & extremely addictive! Great for snacking at parties or to give as a gift.
