Fortunately, candied nuts are also very easy to make. All you need to do is toss the nuts in some egg white and coat with a generous amount of sugar and spices. For this recipe, I used cinnamon and allspice, which combine with the flavor of the pecan to produce a result that tastes exactly of fall and the holiday season. In fact, a batch of these nuts would make a wonderful gift for family or friends, though you'll want to make two so you can keep some for yourself.

Recipe Ingredients for Candied Pecans

2 1/2 cups raw pecans
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Candied Pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, stir the pecans with the egg white.

  3. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon, allspice and salt. Pour over the nuts and stir until evenly coated.

  4. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.

  5. Slide parchment paper (with nuts still on it) off of the baking sheet and onto a wire rack (or the counter) to cool.

  6. Break nuts up into a bowl to serve or store at room temperature in an airtight container.
