How Honey is Made

Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first three ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl, mix together mustard and honey.
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Place racks of lamb in pan, brush with honey mustard. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Press nut mixture on top of lamb. Drizzle with an additional tablespoon of honey.
Roast for about 30 minutes until medium rare. Remove lamb from oven. Let stand 10 minutes.
