Oh Nuts!


Image Found Here

My sweet friend, Katie O., came over last night for a night of Christmas candy making fun. We made Chocolate Peppermint Bark, English Toffee, and Sugared Pecans. Our recipes were courtesy of The Fly Lady. You can find the recipes we used and more here.

All of the treats were so yummy, but my favorite had to be the sugared pecans. The sugared pecans were delicious and easy to make. I made several batches, packaged them in a clear treat bag tied with a pretty ribbon, and gave them to my coworkers as Christmas gifts. They were definitely a hit! If you want to make your own sugared pecans, as a gift or to enjoy, the recipe is below.

Sugared Pecans
1 POUND PECAN HALVES
1 EGG WHITE
1 TABLESPOON WATER
1 CUP SUGAR
1 TEASPOON SALT
1 TEASPOON CINNAMON

Whip egg white and water until stiff. Add pecans and mix well until moistened. Add sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour; turn every fifteen minutes.

I've been using that recipe for years. LOVE it! I use walnuts & pecans mixed together, more cinnamon & add some vanilla to the egg mixture to soak the nuts.

My house smells so good when I make these!
