I made it through the weekend! I did two cooking demonstrations this weekend with my BFF over at Chef In Training. I was so nervous about cooking in front of a huge group of people, but it turned out great. And it was actually kind of fun! This was one of he the recipes that I made in the slow cooker demonstration. Every time I make them I remember how amazing they are. I usually make this recipe with cinnamon almonds. I think making them with cinnamon pecans might just be my new favorite!

But they are so expensive for a little bag. Last year when I made my cinnamon almonds around the holidays I was so excited! My house filled with the cinnamon smell. In about 3 hours I had a big batch! They have a softer cinnamon crunch on the outside. In my opinion, I think that they are better than the ones at the mall! I bought the same bags that they give to you at the mall at the craft store, and they made the perfect holiday gift!

Making these cinnamon pecans twice this week was a great reminder to how much I love this recipe! This is thinking beyond the normal duties of a slow cooker and creating a delicious treat! I admit, the pecans were my favorite. I love pecans anyway, but the cinnamon sugar coating was amazing on them. This is a great recipe to try!

Ingredients 

Instructions 

  • Mix together in a large bowl sugars, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In another bowl with a whisk, mix together the egg white and vanilla until it is frothy. Add the pecans and coat thoroughly. This will help the mixture stick to the pecans during the cooking process.
  • Prepare your slow cooker by spraying it with cooking spray. I used a 4 quart. Add the cinnamon pecan mixture to the pecans and turn it to low. Stir until the cinnamon sugar mixture is coated well on the almonds. Be prepared for your house to smell amazing!
  • You want to cook for about 3-4 hours. Mine took about 3. Stirring every 20 minutes. In the very last hour, add 1/4 cup water and stir well. This will ensure a crunchy coating and help the mixture to harden.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the pecans onto the sheet to cool. The pecans should be pretty sticky so be sure to separate them the best that you can and let them cool!

    This recipe is a favorite every year. I will say the ratio of nuts to sugar mixture is off. I add an extra cup of pecans and still don’t use all the sugar. Otherwise you get a mouth full of sugar. But this is our favorite way to make spiced pecans. Better than those kiosks in the mall during the holidays. Thanks for sharing!

  3. My daughter made these, and they stayed soft and never got hard or crisp. Can I bake them in the oven now so they get crisp? Thank you.
