We receive a package of pecans (yum!!) from my grandma every year. Usually I make pies and cookies, but this year thought I would try something new.

The first thing I made was a set of savory nuts. I tossed the pecans with a tablespoon of olive oil, and then tabasco sauce, soy sauce, and cumin, to taste. Then, I toasted them at 450F for ~10 minutes (well, I should have. I let them go 15 minutes, and it was nearly too long... some nuts ended up with a slight burnt popcorn taste.)

I also made something slightly sweet, where the pecans are tossed with an egg white that has been beaten to white peaks, a quarter cup of sugar, and a tablespoon of cinnamon. I was requested to use more sugar the next time, but the consistency was perfect.
