Cinnamon Spiced Pecans from Tartine & Bean

This lovely recipe comes from Melissa, a client who was inspired by our smoked cinnamon. The results are magical.

  • 1 pound pecans
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 heaping teaspoon smoked cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Blend the egg white until frothed, add pecans and mix well to coat. In a separate bowl, mix sugar cinnamon and salt together and then add the pecans, stirring well to coat. Spread in one even layer on parchment paper. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
