A couple of weeks ago, a friend told me about the pecans she makes – sugared and spiced pecans that she and her husband can hurt themselves over. Doesn’t that sound delightful? 😉
My friend was kind enough to share her recipe with me so I could “test” it – and then give it to you. After making her pecans, I texted her.
I, too, might hurt myself eating these pecans…#hidingfromhubby.
These pecans are quite addictive! (Just kidding about hiding them. Pinkie promise…I shared them with HH.)
HH’s favorite nuts are my Oven-Roasted Salted Pecans, so I have plans to serve both at our next gathering during the holidays. The sugared spiced pecans are on the left. The roasted salted pecans are on the right. HH won’t know which side to attack first. Ha!
These pecans are very easy to make and quicker than the roasted salted variety. You begin by whipping an egg white and water until frothy.
Fold in a pound of pecans.
Into a gallon zip-top bag, combine sugar, salt, and cinnamon. (That’s the sugar and spice to the everything nice!)
Pour the pecans into the bag and shake to coat them. Then pour pecans out onto a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for 28 minutes. I would say 30, but 30 minutes is a little too long. Stir two or three times while baking. Remove from oven.
Let the pan sit for 15 minutes to cool. Break pecans apart while still slightly warm.
The sugar sticks to the parchment slightly, but it’s easy to peel away the parchment paper.
These pecans will be perfect to offer guests during the holidays. They’ll love them!
