    I've done glazed nuts often, but I thought this sounded intriguing and outside the realm of ordinary glazed nuts. I found the vanilla overwhelming. I have to believe the tablespoon of vanilla was a misprint. That's all you taste. Too bad. I think half that much vanilla, a little less cinnamon, a bit more pepper and sugar and maybe this would be a winner. I probably won't attempt it, though.
