Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Place nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until brown and fragrant, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until melted. Continue cooking until butter becomes fragrant and golden brown, taking care not to burn. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together sugar, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, thyme, and rosemary; mix in brown butter. Add nuts and toss to combine. Return nuts to baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake until nuts are semidry, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Cook's Notes

Nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Wow.. We had a 20 people over for a cocktail party and we made these along with this recipe along with deviled eggs & popcorn, etc. Everyone was impressed with how delicious these nuts were. They are now GONE! My fiance was all like "This recipe is a keeper." Add it to your arsenal. You will not regret it.

I made these nuts today for Christmas gifts and packaged them in clear cellophane bags using the Avery Christmas label templates from a previous Martha show. These nuts are delicious - thank you, Thomas, for another great recipe!
