Mom's Spiced Pecans recipe

My mom has been baking Spiced Pecans at Christmastime for over 25 years. She has given the recipe away many times to anyone who asks. She used to get the pecans cheaper in bulk. She gave them away in little cups or tins to the mailman, the neighbors, people at her work, my Dad's work and at church. Everyone loves them!

I don't make them as much or as often as she does, but I do try to make at least one batch a year. They are pretty easy. I hope you will enjoy them too!

Spiced Pecans
1 tsp cold water
1 egg white
1 lb pecans
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Beat water and egg white together until frothy. Add pecans and stir. Mix sugar, salt and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Stir into nuts. Butter 10 X 15" pan. Spread pecans evenly into pan. Bake at 225 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
They are delicious!

Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your review!

Genesis 37:25
As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt.

Genesis 43:11
Then their father Israel said to them, “If it must be, then do this: Put some of the best products of the land in your bags and take them down to the man as a gift—a little balm and a little honey, some spices and myrrh, some pistachio nuts and almonds.

John 19:40
Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.
