Sugared Nuts



  • 2 tablespoons water or cooking sherry
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 1/2 s pecan halves


Whisk liquid with egg white. Add sugar and seasonings and beat until foamy, but not stiff. Add nuts and stir to coat evenly. Put on foil lined baking sheet. Bake 1/2 hour, stirring to loosen from tray at halfway point; bake 1/2 hour longer or until glaze has dried at 250°. Keep a good eye on them toward the end of the hour to prevent burning.
