I found this recipe in the Union Square Cafe cookbook last year. There are tons of different versions of it floating around but I thought I'd share mine with you!

I love these so much, they are so easy to make and have such a yummy buttery rosemary-infused, sweet, spicy, salty flavor. Extremely addicting!

They go great with cocktails and are just as wonderful served warm as they are cooled. Perfect little snack.

At first glance these may look like normal nuts, but when you take your first bite you realize they are anything but normal! I'm a big fan of rosemary and spice, so these nuts were a real winner for me. When Lindsey says they're addicting she's not kidding! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
