Spiced Pecans

I love going to the mall this time of the year. Our local mall sells different varieties of spiced nuts that smell ridiculously delicious, but the only problem is, they cost about a gazillion dollars for 1/4 pound of goodness. So, I asked my dear friend Sara if she had a recipe for spiced pecans, and lucky for me she did and was willing to share. :) Pecans can be a bit pricey in the grocery store, but this time of the year you may be able to find a good sale price for pecan halves. And you do want to use pecan halves, not pieces, for this recipe.

Spiced Pecans
1 egg white
2 Tbs water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
3 cup pecan halves

Whisk the egg white until frothy; blend in the water, sugar, and spices. Add the pecans and toss. Spread mixture onto a foil covered baking sheet and bake for 250 for 45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes. Spread onto wax paper to cool.
