Nuts, Meshuganuts I (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Yield: 3 cups

3 cups pecans or walnuts (or a mixture or each)
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
Dash salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon (I use 1 teaspoon)

Bake nuts for 10 minute until lightly browned. Be sure to watch them so they do not burn.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold in cinnamon, sugar, and salt. Add nuts and butter.

Bake until light brown on a cookie sheet. Stir and separate the nuts while browning. Bake 10-15 minutes in a 375°F to 400°F oven. Again, watch them closely because they will be done sooner than you think and you don't want them to burn.

Poster's Notes:
These are a deadringer for the Meshuga Nuts. For those who have eaten the real thing--you will be surprised at how these come out and how easy they are to make. Also, when cleaning up--just pour boiling water over everything and the sugar will melt easily. We like them best with pecans.
