Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Pecans
Easy to prepare and simply delicious, these spiced nuts have warm holiday spices and sweet vanilla. Great for serving to holiday guests! They are also perfect for taking to ball games, to top salads with, or to add to homemade granola.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Grease or line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar, nutmeg, ginger and salt. In a small bowl, whip together egg white and Madagascar vanilla extract until fluffy. Pour pecans into a separate bowl. Spoon egg white mixture over pecans and toss until well coated. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture over the egg white coated pecans and toss to coat. Repeat with remaining sugar mixture, coating evenly. Spread the nuts in a single layer onto the baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, making sure to stir the pecans every 15 min. Remove from oven and cool before serving.
