Pecan Recipe

Some of you wanted the spiced nut recipe... as follows:

Sugar & Spice Pecans

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 TB pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg white
3 cups unsalted pecan halves

oven 300
line baking sheet with parchment

mix brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cayenne pepper, cumin & salt

whisk egg WHITE & 1 TB water in medium bowl until frothy

add pecans, stir to coat evenly.  sprinkle on sugar mixture, toss nuts to coat

spread in even layer on parchment covered baking sheet

bake 30 min, stir once

loosen nuts and cool 

store in airtight container at room temp for one week

see, really easy and I have made two batches and no problems  :)  AND if you follow me, you know this can be iffy.....


  1. Which ingredient is it that I leave out??

  2. Sounds delicious. I'm sure they disappear as fast as you make them. FYI, robot check box but no numbers or words. GREAT!

  3. The pecans sound delicious. I alternate between pecan and walnut pieces in my breakfast fruit bowl, so I get my fill on nuts, but I'd be tempted to try these.

  4. Your food pictures always make me hungry. I cook but I don't bake ... so off to the store I go for any baked goods. From the pictures I have no doubt that yours taste much better than what I buy.

  5. This looks delicious. I made something similar but a lot of the crunchy outer layer fell off--is that typical or did I screw up somewhere? Thank you for the recipe.
