A little salty and a little sweet...

Still need a little something on your Thanksgiving menu to munch on while waiting for the turkey to come out of the oven or while cheering on your favorite team. I just made a batch of Sugared Pecans and thought I'd share the recipe. They are the perfect combination of a little salty and a little sweet. They can be served as an appetizer, a dessert, a snack or even sprinkled on a salad. And so quick and easy to make!



Sugared Pecans

4 cups pecan halves
1 egg white
1 tsp cold water
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt


Beat egg white with water until frothy (a fork will work fine). Fold in pecans to coat well. Add the sugar, cinnamon and salt and fold again.


Spread on a cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees. Stir once or twice during baking and again once you remove the tray from the oven.






These freeze really well so you can make them ahead. And they make yummy gifts throughout the holiday season. Enjoy!


I am thankful for the time you take to spend here at Elizabeth & Co. And your friendship is greatly appreciated!


Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope it is shared with the people you love!

These sound yummy. I've had them in a strawberry spinach salad at a restaurant recently and it was amazing!

SO thrilled that you posted this! We often crossed the border to shop in Mexico - they made these nuts on the streets and they were amazing! Now that border shopping is now discouraged, I can't get these any longer! I'll be making these THIS week! -diane

I had to come back and find this recipe! I've got the same folks coming over for Christmas, and they have dropped hints about how much they LOVED your pecans. Guess this is going to be a regular treat for the holiday! God's blessings to you!
