Rosemary Roasted Cashews

This past Christmas my co-worker made these delicious nuts as gifts for the office people.
I just asked her this week for the recipe & made them at home for the family, they got gobble up in a hot second!
Super easy to make & very good!  Kinda addicting!

She got this from the Barefoot Contessa (well not directly)

1 1/4 pounds cashew nuts
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt ( I used Sea Salt)
1 tablespoon melted butter

Directions :
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they are
warmed through(watch those nuts they can burn quickly!). Meanwhile, combine the rosemary, pepper, sugar, salt and butter in a large
bowl. Toss the warm nuts with the rosemary mixture until the nuts are completely coated.
Serve warm.

Hope you love em'!
