1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are foamy and nearly stiff.

3. In another mixing bowl, combine the nuts, sugars, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt and toss to coat. Fold in the egg whites, tossing gently to make sure that all the nuts have been coated in egg white.

4. Divide the mixture evenly between the two prepared sheet pans. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, rotating the pans 
and stirring the nuts at the 15-minute mark. The nuts 
should be dry and crisp after 30 minutes.

5. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
