Thanksgiving Favors

On Matthew meade style, there are treat boxes for Halloween and Thanksgiving.They are available in PDF form so you can download them at home and make them. For our Trip out east, I am going to make these for the guests at Thanksgiving dinner.My friend Teresa taught me last year how to make spiced pecans. I am going to fill the boxes with the nuts, a tie a ribbon around!

Spiced Pecans

Turn on oven to 250.
1 lb. pecans
1 egg white
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbls. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt

Beat egg white till frothy. Pour over pecans and combine till all the nuts are wet. Mix dry ingredients and then add to wet pecans. Combine till all the pecans are cover in the dry ingredients. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Stir pecans, return to the oven,turn off the oven, and leave in for 30 more minutes.

I think I will make the boxes too. We're having dinner at my house this year. I might do almonds instead, so Scott can eat them.
