How to Make It

  1. In a bowl, mix honey, sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon. Add nuts and mix well to coat. Scrape nut mixture into a buttered 9- by 13-inch pan and shake to make level.

  2. Bake in a 300° oven, shaking pan often, until nuts are golden brown under skins (break to test, if necessary), 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Scrape nuts onto a buttered 10- by 12-inch piece of foil and let cool about 15 minutes, then break apart. Serve, or store airtight up to 3 days.
