One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year was a bag of pecans, fresh from my mother-in-law’s yard. It was like getting a bag of possibilities. We came up with a lot of ideas for how we would cook the pecans. Everyone agreed to use part of the pecans to make sweet, spiced pecans. These pecans are a little addictive. This sweet, spiced pecan recipe is easy-peasy (just the way I like my recipes). These pecans are great whether you are hiking a trail or just hiking over to the appetizers at your New Year’s Eve party.
Sweet, Spiced Pecan Recipe1 slightly beaten egg white 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp crushed clove 1/4 tsp allspice 2 Tbsp cold water 1 cup pecans Combine water with egg whites. Dissolve sugar in water and egg white mixture. Add spices. Dip nuts in mixture and place on greased cookie sheet, flat side down. I think that step is a little silly. Unless you are a person who has tons of extra time on your hands, I suggest just mixing the pecans in with the other ingredients. I scoop them out with a fork, so the mixture isn’t too caked up on the pecans. Place them in a single layer on a greased cookie sheet. Bake @ 250 degrees for 1 hour. Enjoy! I’ll see ya around the campfire. Tiffany
