Spiced Pecans

My brother Gary's former mother-in-law had a lot of tasty treats and this was a real winner as far as we were all concerned!! It is by far the best nut recipe I have ever tasted. is easy!! That is a winning combination.

Preheat the oven to 265 degrees F. and generously butter a large pan with a lip around it. I use a half sheet pan. Then you'll need in a large bowl:

1 large egg white beaten until frothy with a whisk or fork with 2 T. rum or 1 T. water. (I use rum.

Toss into the frothy mixture 2 C. whole pecans and stir well to coat.  Using another bowl,

Sift together:
1 C. sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon

Add the sugar mixture to the nut and egg/rum mixture and stir well until all the nuts are coated and scrape it all including any excess sugar onto the prepared sheet and spread it evenly. Bake this for 45 minutes stirring every 15 minutes
