This is a great thing to make right before your family comes home or guests arrive…the aroma makes the house smell like Christmas!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (or a little more)
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
Mix together with whisk in small bowl.
Add to water and egg white.
2 T. water
1 egg white (slightly beaten)
Whisk together well.
Pour in 2 1/2 cups (or more) pecan halves and stir to coat. Spray oil on large cookie sheet (or jelly roll pan with edges works best). Use your fingers to turn pecans over so that the flat side is down on the baking sheet. Bake in a 250 degree oven for 1 hour, stir half way through cooking and separate as much as you can. Stir again while cooling in pan to help break apart. After completely cool store in airtight container to keep them crunchy in humid weather.
