Another cinnamon recipe?
While the rest of the internet is obsessed with pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that, I've been seduced by cinnamon.
Cinnamon is just such a wonderful flavor, and it's a perfect spice to enjoy throughout the fall and winter: cinnamon rolls, spice cake, cinnamon dolce lattes, apple cinnamon whiskey sours, and now....
Cinnamon Sugar Pecans!
Seriously, start making these right now. They will make your house smell amazing while they bake, and once they come out the of oven you'll probably have to nibble on one, two, twelve, 1/2 the pan... If you try for a pan a week, then I predict that by time the holidays roll around, you might have enough stocked up to get through at least one office party potluck.
Cinnamon Sugar Pecans
- 1 pound pecans (3-4 cups)
- 1 egg white
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease with cooking spray.
Place pecans in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, mix together sugars, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk egg white and vanilla together until frothy. Pour over pecans and toss so that all nuts are evenly coated. Fold in the sugar mixture and continue to stir until most of the mixture adheres to the pecans.
Pour pecans out on the baking sheet (along with any residual sugar mix) and smooth to an even layer.
Bake for 1 hour total, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
Allow to cool before storing in an airtight container.
