Sweet and Crunchy Walnuts

Great recipes are like great books, they are meant to be shared. And this recipe my friends is one of my favorites. I have been making these walnuts for almost 20 years now, and every time they get rave reviews. Of course when I started making the recipe walnuts did not cost $6.99 a pound, so these days I will typically make them to give as gifts. The method for making this recipe is very easy, the trick is to cook the nuts on a low oven setting over the period of an hour.

To make this treat you will need...

1 lb walnut pieces
Whites from 2 large eggs at room temperature
1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted

And here's what you need to do...

Heat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit and have a 15 1/2 inch x 10 1/2inch jellyroll pan ready.  Beat the egg whites with an electric hand beater in a large bowl until they form soft peaks when the beaters are lifted. Gradually add the brown sugar and continue beating until the mixture becomes glossy. Stir in the melted butter and then add the walnuts and mix until the nuts are completely coated. Spread them out on the jellyroll sheet and place in prepared oven. Bake for one hour or until the mixture is dry, stirring the nuts every 15 minutes with a cookie spatula.

Let them cool completely and then enjoy!
