Every year, we invite a lot of people to our annual holiday party. It’s a great time. Everyone tends to wander the houses between the living room and kitchen upstairs, and the pool room and second living room downstairs. While I set most of the food in our dining room, I always make sure there is something downstairs – usually little bowls of nuts on the bar tables in the pool room, and a mini appetizer and dessert tray in the second living room. These rosemary cashews were perfect. Sweet with just a slight kick, they’re delicious served warm or at room temperature.

Note that the recipe on Food Network’s website is different from the one found in Barefoot in Paris – it has different quantities of several of the ingredients as well as a different baking temperature. I used the recipe from Barefoot in Paris.


Rosemary Cashews

Adapted from Ina Garten’s Barefoot in Paris(p. 36)

Makes 3 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. unsalted cashews
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Place nuts on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 5-6 minutes, stirring nuts halfway through.

Combine rosemary, cayenne, brown sugar and salt in a small bowl.

In a large bowl (or serving dish if serving immediately), sprinkle above mix and drizzle butter over nuts, tossing as you go. I do recommend sprinkling and tossing the nuts to make sure they’re evenly seasoned. Stir well until nuts are covered in the spices.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
