Incredibly versatile, these sweet little nuts from Peter Davis are a must-try this fall. Perfect in salads, as part of a baked fruit crisp topping or simply served as a snack alongside a cocktail in the evening, you may have to make a few batches of these treats to satisfy all your cravings. Shouldn’t be too hard either, since you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.


Servings: 8


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 pound walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except the walnuts, in a saucepan and simmer very slowly for three minutes.
  3. Pour the glaze over the nuts on a sheet pan and bake, stirring every ten minutes, until the nuts look dry, about thirty to forty minutes.
