    Served at our wedding. A little pre-wedding snack with cocktails. Cashews are the perfect sweet nut for these pungent seasoning.

      I wasn't sure whether to use raw or roasted cashews, so I used raw. They turned out really well. They don't really crunch up until they have cooled. I thought I had done something wrong. I made them for a birthday gift for my dad.

      I have made this recipe several times now and I've used peanuts, cashews and pistachios. They are all great. I also added 1 tsp of lime juice to the egg white (instead of water) for more tang. I also used 2 tsp chili powder (New Mexico Hot Chili powder) and increased the cayenne pepper to 1 tsp. We like them just a little kickier! These are fantastic whatever nut you decide to use. UPDATE: (8/08) I made these again with peanuts recently and instead of the cayanne pepper I used 1/2 tsp ground Chipotle Chile Pepper - fantastic!!! Very smoky flavor.
