Pssssst…want to know a secret? I have a holiday treat recipe that is so easy a child can do it. As a matter of fact, it’s a great activity for you and your kids to do together. These cinnamon spiced pecans are a wonderful snack, an easy and thoughtful gift, and everyone loves them. They only take a handful of ingredients and the whole thing is ready from start to finish in about 30 minutes.
I found this recipe a few years ago on the Taste of Home website.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg white
1 pound large pecan halves
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, lightly best the egg white. Add the pecans, stirring until coated. Sprinkle with the sugar mixture and mix well, taking care not to break the pecans.
Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove nuts from baking sheet and cool on waxed paper.
