Frosted Pecans

I just discovered this recipe this Christmas. Far and away, my favorite treat this past holiday. It isn’t the easiest recipe I’ve listed (we know how much I like that <eye roll>) but I think the results make up for the work involved.

  • 1 egg whitefrosted-pecans-2
  • 2 TBS cold water
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 1/4 tsp All Spice
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 c pecans

Combine egg white and water, salt and spices. Beat until foamy. Add sugar, 1 TBS at a time, beat until stiff peaks form. Dip pecan in milk, one at a time. Layer in baking tray 1 ” apart.

Bake 275 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Store in a tight container. Voila!

    My ex made something very similar to these. Very tasty indeed! Not too hard to make but delivers a very tasty result 🙂

    I might have to try this. I love pecans. Heck, I like most nuts. Well,except plain peanuts. But pecans are up there.

    These are radically delish. I can’t wait to try this version. Perfect with coffee anytime.
