Spiced Pecans

Want something to add a little interest to your salad, give it a little kick, well these pecans will do the trick, they will take an ordinary salad and elevate it to extraordinary. I am not sure where this recipe originated from but a dear friend gave it to me years ago and we have been making them ever since.

                                                 Spiced Pecans
                                                             2 large egg whites
                                                             1 1/2 teaspoon salt
                                                             3/4 cup sugar
                                                             2 teaspoons worcheshire
                                                             2 tablespoons paprika
                                                             1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
                                                             4 1/2 cups pecans or 1 large bag
                                                             6 tablespoons butter, melted

Beat eggs whites till frothy, then add the next 5 ingredients, fold in pecans and melted butter. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes. After done take off cookie sheet and store. Do not let get too cool or they will be difficult to remove (I use parchment paper on the cookie sheet and find that works well) Can store in freezer for several weeks.

                        These nuts also make great snacks but be forewarned, they are quite addicting

This sounds so delicious! I'm going to add this to our Christmas baking ... a jar of these with a festive Christmas ribbon will make a nice gift for neighbors and others who we want to remember at Christmastime.

The name just pulled me over here..they sound wonderful..I love pecans, we would pick them and shell them with my grandmother...my dream place would be a place with pecan trees...and it is the state tree of Texas...now I need a handful of these, they are calorie free right?
