Took the advice of others (one of the reasons this is my go-to food site), and used cardamom instead of cloves, doubled the egg and added .5 more cinnamon and 1t cayenne, baked at 300 f for about 1 hour, turning every 10. They turned out amazing. I used a mix of cashews, pecans, walnuts and almonds, and was able to add about 1 - 1.5 cups more nuts: deluxe mix! Not too sweet, and a great balance of spice and nut. The cardamom smells overpowering while cooking, but the taste is great once the nuts have cooled. Some easy hints to make these gems last: let cool completely before storing, store in freezer for long life. Truly gift-worthy.
