Sugar and Spice Candied Pecans


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt

  • Generous pinch of cayenne

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 pound pecans

  • 1 egg white (room temperature)

  • 1 Tbsp water


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix sugars, salt, cayenne, and cinnamon, and set aside. Beat egg white and water until frothy but not stiff. Add pecans and stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle nuts with sugar mixture and toss until evenly coated. Spread nuts in a single layer on a sheet tray with parchment paper. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
