Rosemary Roasted Cashews

These sweet and salty  cashews are down right addicting.  The rosemary blends wonderfully with the roasted flavor of the nuts and the cayenne pepper gives it a subtle kick.  This recipe is simply fantastic! My friend served them at a party while her guests mingled before dinner.  Ever since that first bite, I have been craving them!

1 1/4 lb cashews (unsalted)
2 Tb coarsely chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tb melted unsalted butter

Spread  cashews on ungreased baking sheet and roast in 375 degree F preheated oven for 10 minutes.  Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl.  Toss the warm nuts with the rosemary mixture until the nuts are completely coated.  Serve warm.

*if your cashews are salted, cut back on the kosher salt to about 1 teaspoon then add more to taste.
