Sugar and Spice Pecans are everything that is good about Christmas sweets. They are earthy, but sweet and full of all the cozy spices available. They taste like pecan pie that you can eat with your hands!

My sweet, but earthy and spicy, mother-in-law gave me the recipe for Sugar and Spice Pecans and she has made them for as long as I can remember. And that’s been a long time: I’ve been married to her son for almost 31 years and we dated for 7 years before that!

They really are so easy to make … an egg white, some sugar, some warm spices … all stirred together and baked on low for about an hour.

Eat and Give Sugar and Spice Pecans

Simply a classy snack. I love adding Sugar and Spice Pecans to cheese or dessert trays. They go especially well with blue cheese and they look beautiful on a tray of Christmas cookies! And don’t forget to wrap some in cellophane bags tied with baker’s twine for a lovely gift.
