I’ve recently seen several recipes for spiced pecans. Lots of them looked great, but many of them called for cloves, pumpkin spice or egg whites. I’m not a fan of cloves or pumpkin and I wasn’t sure about the need for egg whites. So, what do you do when you don’t find just what you’re looking for? You create your own version!
These make a great snack item for a holiday treats table and they are very easy to put together.
2 cups of pecans, halved
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
