Recently, I wanted a real gingerbread recipe not cookies, but bread. All I could think of was Mary Poppins talking about gingerbread– I might be the only person that thinks about random dialogue from movies but I am okay with that. So, my quest for a good gingerbread recipe is how I found this free book for kindle. In it are tons of Gingerbread recipes. Though, I haven’t tried their version of gingerbread yet. I found this delicious one, Grandmother’s Soft Gingerbread Cake.
The Cinnamon and Ginger Nuts kept catching my eye, so I decided to make them for a little baby shower I was hosting. They were a huge hit with the care group ladies and even with my kids! Since they liked them so much, I gave them to the care group ladies as little Christmas presents!
I hope that you enjoy them too!
Cinnamon and Ginger Nuts
From Gingerbread Cookbook by Gooseberry Patch.
3c mixed nuts
1 egg white
1 T. orange juice
2/3 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. allspice
1/4 t. salt
Place nuts in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Whisk egg white and orange juice together until frothy; mix in remaining ingredients. Pour over nuts; mix thoroughly. Spread coated nuts onto an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet (wish I had a silicon mat for this part!) Bake at 275 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool; store in an airtight container. Makes 3 cups.
And I’ll leave you with a little Mary Poppins… one of my all time favorite movies! A Spoonful of Sugar – Julie Andrews.
