FOODIE FRIDAY – (enjoy a new recipe to
try this weekend!)

Ok yes I have to admit that I’ve been very naughty these past days. Eating all the cookies that my sister and brother-in-law have made this year. 31 different kinds!!!! Lemon blueberry, kolachies, spritz, meltaways and even sweet breads. Oooo la la!!! Since I can’t send you any of these delicious cookies, I can at least provide a sweet treat for you to enjoy.

What’s more Christmassy than a nutcracker and a bowl of nuts? Nothing! Except maybe candied walnuts. Mmmm…
If you need a quickie appetizer or last minute fit to package up for someone, this delicious recipe will be a hit!!!

THE NUTCRACKER Candied Walnuts

Ingredients

1 pound walnut halves
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread nuts in a single layer over a baking sheet. Roast for approximately 8 to 10 minutes, or until the nuts start to turn brown and the smell of roasting nuts fills the kitchen.

Stir together sugar, cinnamon, salt, and milk in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat for 8 minutes, or until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage of 236 degrees F (113 degrees C). Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla immediately. .

Add walnuts to sugar syrup, and stir to coat well. Spoon nuts onto waxed paper, and immediately separate nuts with a fork. Cool, and store in airtight containers.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
