Easy Glazed Walnut Halves
2 T. butter
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. walnut halves or other nuts, lightly toasted if possible
1 t. vanilla
Melt butter and sugar together in a large skillet over medium heat watching carefully and stirring frequently. When mixture is just about melted, (this take about 10 minutes.) Add nuts, cooking and stirring until nuts are completely coated with sugar mixture. Remove from heat and add vanilla and spices, if using. Turn into a non-stick sprayed baking sheet. Using two forks and working quickly separate nuts into individual pieces and let cool. Store in tightly covered zip-top bag. Makes 2 cups.
Use as a snack, in snack mixes and to add crunch and sweetness to salads.
