Spiced Pecans

Ok guys and gals, this is a completely easy and beautifully perfect recipe!  

Just a few simple ingredients push these pecans into flavor overdrive. 

These are great for serving to your guests on the weekends as a pre-dinner snack, sipping on a cold beer, waiting for the BBQ to be served…

And the best part is, these can be made ahead and stored for a week before serving… however, I doubt they’ll last that long!

 

Pecans

Of course, we start with whole raw California pecans.

 

Separate egg yoke from egg white

We use egg whites as the base for keeping all the spices adhered to the nuts.  Easy peasy!

Separate the yolks from the whites in a bowl.

 

Whisk egg white vigorously

And whisk vigorously until foamy.
