| These hot and spicy macadamias came to be because I was trying to think of safe tasty treats to have lying around for a festive get together. This really fit the bill!|
They don't need refrigeration, so they can just "sit around". They don't need sticks or toothpicks. They're not particularly sloppy (although napkins would help, the red spices do stick to finger tips), and they don't need a lot of garnish or fuss. They're even really super easy to make! Just toast, toss with a little butter in a pan, throw in your spices and lemon juice ... toss, toss, toss ... DONE!
These are a hot and spicy, with a slight exotic twist and a tart finish ... thanks to the cumin and lemon. I'm not a huge fan of nuts, as a general rule, but ... these things were addictive!
