When your oven is busy baking other dishes for your party table, use your slow cooker for these sweet and savory nuts. They’re great as a party food, but would also make a nice hostess gift. It’s important to let the nuts cool completely before placing them in a storage container.

How to Make It

1. Combine pecans, almonds, and cashews in a 6-quart oval slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Drizzle the nuts with honey and melted butter. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning, thyme, and salt; stir to coat. Cover and cook on low until nuts are toasted, 2 to 3 hours, stirring every hour.

2. Spread mixture on baking sheets to cool completely. (Nuts will become crisper after cooling.)
