Notes

I've made this with 2 cups pecans and 2 cups almonds before (so 4 cups nuts total). I also have made them with 4 cups all almonds. The amount of egg white you get from an egg is extremely different, given that every egg is different.
If you feel that there is too much egg white after you've poured in all the nuts according to the recipe above, you can add more nuts (gives you more treats!). The seasoning amount stays the same.
These bake in 20-30 minutes. Different ovens yield different bake times. I have baked them for 30 minutes in one oven, 20 in another, and 25 minutes in another. All different ovens. With that said, please watch your baking and do stir them frequently as just leaving them to bake without monitoring them will cause them to burn.
