Updated Aug 26, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups pecan or walnut halves
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamom

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 300°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix egg white and pecan halves until pecans are coated and sticky.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix sugar and cardamom; sprinkle over pecans. Stir until pecans are completely coated. Spread pecans in single layer in pan.
  • 3
    Bake about 30 minutes or until toasted. Cool completely, or serve slightly warm. Store tightly covered up to 3 weeks.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Ground cinnamon can be substituted for the cardamom; both spices are perfect for the holidays.
  • tip 2
    Unique food gifts are such a nice surprise. A bag of these nuts along with an excellent blue cheese, bottled vinaigrette dressing and fresh pears is the start of a spectacular salad. All that's needed is the greens.
