Holiday Spiced Pecans

We’re starting off the Thanksgiving week on the right foot with this next little number.  Spice, spice, spice!  If the holiday season had a flavor, this would be it.  I make these every year for Thanksgiving,  just to have something to snack on — you know, in between snacks — and each time they go into the oven I fall in love all over again.   If only you could have smelled the heavenly aroma’s filling my kitchen this weekend, oh me.

Spiced Pecans

  • 1 egg white + 1 tbsp water
  • 3 cups pecans
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of cayenne

Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with foil.  In a large bowl beat the egg white and water together with a fork and add the pecans, and all spices.  Toss to moisten pecans completely.  Spread pecans on the baking sheet and bake for about 25-30 minutes stirring frequently throughout the baking time (important to prevent burning and even cooking).  Remove from oven, cool and serve.
