Candied Spiced Pecans




Yield 4 cups


1 large egg white

1/2 cup sugar

1t cinnamon

1t ground cumin

1t cayenne pepper

1 t salt

4 cups pecans


In a medium mixing bowl combine the egg white, sugar and spices and mix well. Add the pecans and toss to coat all of the nuts evenly. Line a 9 X 20 sheet pan with parchment paper or foil, very important, if you don't you will never get the pan clean. Bake in a preheated 225 degree oven for 40 minutes. Let cool and gently pull the pecans off the foil. Store in an air tight container or zip lock bag. These will keep for a couple of weeks.


You canĀ  use any kind of unseasoned nut that you like. I have done these with walnuts and/or cashews as well. I just seem to like the pecans best.
