#SundaySupper today is bringing you Gifts From The Kitchen. Ken had been wanting to make some kind of pecans for awhile now. Had a hankering for them! And when he made them they were perfectly timed for this post. Cinnamon Candied Pecans were born because I asked him to go to the sweet side. He has made spiced nuts before and they are either spicy or sweet spicy but never had he made candied ones. I love giving little gifts from the kitchen and do it as much as I can but at Christmas we are always doing something special for gifts. Even if it is a little jar or container tucked inside a parcel, bag or basket, it adds that special charm and meaning. Something made from the heart!
A lot of cookies go out of this house wrapped up in pretty boxes over the holidays but I wanted to share something else with you. I have to say that I had to put these in a large jar and say that was off limits or the entire recipe would have disappeared, they are that good!! Super addicting, you can’t eat just one. They were vanishing at the photo shoot too!!
The large jar is going out as a gift this weekend to a Grey Cup party. If I didn’t stow them away the batch would have been gone for sure!! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!! Can’t wait until he makes some more for us!!
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp. water
- 1 lb. pecan halves
- Preheat oven to 250F. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon and salt.
- Whisk egg white and water together in another bowl until frothy. Mix the pecans into the egg white mixture. Then toss in the cinnamon sugar and stir to coat all the pecans making sure they are evenly coated.
- Spread the nuts onto a rimmed cookie sheet.
- Bake for 1 hour and 15 min., stirring every 15 min. until pecans are browned. Let cool on cookie sheet. Give as gifts as desired.
I am so excited to go through all of these posts to see everyone’s Gifts From The Kitchen. I hope you enjoy them all!
