Cinnamon Sugared Walnuts

Fran Miller


I first got these as a "teacher gift" for Christmas almost 30 years ago. Then I just had to track down the mom and beg for the recipe!

These make an EXCELLENT food gift for all the people you appreciate and/or love. I usually double the recipe (after buying a large bag of walnuts on sale or at a warehouse store.) I've packaged them in tea cups, coffee mugs, tiny decorated boxes or bags, tins, and little vintage dishes.

If you come up with a beautiful idea, please post it. =^..^=

How to Make Cinnamon Sugared Walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. (PLEASE note the temperature is THREE HUNDRED degrees! These nuts will burn at a higher temperature. Don't ask how I know this...)
  2. Spray a cookie sheet (with sides, unless you're really coordinated) with cooking spray.
  3. Stir together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Put the nuts in a large bowl and pour in the egg white. Mix together well. (OK, I admit I mix this recipe up with my hands.)
  5. Pour the sugar & cinnamon mixture over the nuts and mix well.
  6. Spread in a single layer on the prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes (I check after 25 minutes) until the nuts are toasted and dry. Serve warm or cool completely.
  8. Store in an air-tight container.
