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.

Good snack. I have enjoyed them despite an occcasional need for a Tums ;). I think when I make them again I may have to use less cayenne and more salt to tweak for our personal preference. The lime juice sounds good too. This flexible recipe is very easy to prepare. Perhaps almonds next time with a bit more sugar, hmmm...

Very tasty- used this for our Mardi Gras party. My 9 year old did all the measuring and mixing, as she is quickly becoming a "chef". My husband loved the taste, as did the guests.

Great!! Made as directed with no subs. Worked even for those who aren't into spicy. Thanks, Gay.

Well, I made these and as they were cooling, I had to chase off DH several times. He kept eating them and eating them and eating them. I begged him to save a few for the guests. He did finally manage to control himself but does love these. The prep and cooking were easy. Thanks.

Very good mix of flavours with a slow burn heat. I made them as part of my gift hampers for Christmas. Had to keep chasing my husband out of the kitchen because of too much sampling:) Thanks for sharing!
