I doubled the recipe and tweaked it the first time I made it by using double the cinnamon and pinches of cloves and allspice. That was not enough spice for me! Even though I received nice compliments on the nuts, I felt I only tasted nuts and no spice. So, for the second batch I made, I increased the spice! I didn't officially measure anything, but approximately 3+ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp cloves, 1 tsp allspice, and 1 tsp ginger. Even with the increases of the spices, I think the outcome is still 'light' spice. In this second batch, I did a double of the pecans, and then another batch of almonds. The almonds were fine, but I like how the nooks/crannies of the pecans hold the sugar/spice better! Otherwise, I had no problems making them; I baked them on parchment paper and that made for easy clean up! Looking forward to giving these away as Christmas treats!
