A fall favorite treat. You’ll be amazed at how simple these are to make!
Preheat oven to 300ºF and line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly grease aluminum foil with cooking spray or canola oil.
In a medium bowl, combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and mix well. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together egg white, water, and vanilla extract until it become foamy, about 2-3 minutes. Add pecans to the egg white mixture and toss until all pecans are coated. Using a slotted spoon, lift coated pecans into the sugar mixture. Use a fork to gently stir the pecans into the sugar mixture until all pecans are coated. Be careful not to overmix or the sugar will begin to flake off of the pecans.
Spread pecans evenly over the lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Mix and turn pecans with a fork and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. You may have to break apart some of the pecans, as they may be stuck together with additional sugar.
Store pecans in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. After that point, they will begin to soften.

This recipe is so fresh, vibrant, and light, perfect for any summer picnic or family get-together. I must give credit to Emeril Lagasse for his fabulous pie crust recipe, and my former mother-in-law for her amazing pie recipe. She has always been a baking inspiration for me.
