Spicy Glazed Pecans

I can't remember where I got this recipe from.  I found it in the pile of recipes for my family cookbook.  I decided to make this with the leftover pecans from my Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cheesecake.  These are addictive!

  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 cups pecans (about a 1-lb. bag)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • Place nuts in a large bowl.
  • Coat with egg whites and stir until pecans are sticky.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the pecans.
  • Stir until the pecans are completely coated.
  • Spread pecans on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  • During baking, stir/flip pecans occasionally (once every 10 minutes works well).
  • Cool and separate into pieces.  Store in an airtight container.


  1. I think I am going to try this with almonds since pecans are rediculous expensive here. Crazy that almonds are cheaper huh?

  2. It is. Let me know how they turn out. :)
