‘Tis the season to feast

Let cool for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together rosemary, brown sugar, coriander, salt and pepper; set aside.

In medium bowl, lightly beat egg white. Stir in cooled nuts. Sprinkle with rosemary mixture and toss to coat evenly.

Spread nuts in single layer on parchment paper-lined baking tray. Return to oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until they have a deep golden glaze. Transfer nuts to bowl; stir in cranberries while nuts are still warm and let cool. Makes 12 servings.
