These pecans are the perfect appetizer or snack to enjoy during the holiday season.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk egg white in a large bowl until foamy. Add pecans, and stir until evenly coated with egg white.

Step 2

Stir together sugar and next 4 ingredients until blended; sprinkle sugar mixture evenly over pecans; stir gently until pecans are evenly coated. Spread pecans in a single layer in a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 18 to 20 minutes or until pecans are toasted and dry, stirring once after 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool 30 minutes or until completely cool.

Step 4

Note: Store pecans in a zip-top plastic freezer bag at room temperature up to 3 days, or freeze up to 3 weeks.

So Good, So Easy

These spiced pecans are super easy to make and super delicious.  They have just the right amount of coating, so they're sweet without being too sweet.

Easy, with a nice sweet-and-spicy kick. Can be made with Splenda, and is great in a salad.
