Pumpkin Spiced Roasted Nuts

There’s nothing I love more than putting a spin on a recipe and having it come out as a success. Then again, there’s nothing I hate more than putting a spin on a recipe and it coming out a disaster.But luckily, that wasn’t the case this time. I mean, how can you go wrong with pumpkin pie spice and nuts? You’d be nuts to not like that combo. (See what I did there? Nuts…you’d be nuts.) Anywho. These are truly delicious. The right amount of sweet. The perfect crunch. Delicious.
