Recipe Time #10: "Holiday Coffee" Pecans

Inspired by Bon Appetit's Candied Espresso Walnuts recipe, these pecans are lightly sweet with a wonderful, aromatic nuance of sweet spices and finely-ground coffee - great as a party snack or as quick 'n easy homemade gifts!The ingredients:
10 ounces raw pecan halves
1 egg white
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. finely ground coffee (or instant coffee)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees; combine sugar, coffee, ginger, cinnamon & nutmeg in a bowl.
2. In a large bowl (big enough to toss the pecans in), beat the egg white until frothy, add vanilla extract
3. Toss raw pecans into the egg white until thoroughly coated, then add the sugar mixture and toss again until the pecans are covered in the mixture.
4. Spread on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet on a single layer, bake in the oven for about 5 minutes.
5. Take out of oven, give the pecans a turn and a flip, pop in oven again to bake for another 5-7 minutes.
6. Remove from oven, let it cool and serve or wrap!
