  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons 3/4 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For Pecans
 

  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups raw pecan halves

Instructions

  1. Place a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk egg white until the whites have foamed into small white bubbles. Add sugar, spices, and salt. Whisk until thick and opaque. Add pecans and toss to coat. Once thoroughly coated, spoon pecans onto prepared baking sheet. Leave any extra coating in the bowl.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until nuts are fragrant and toasted golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before chopping and incorporating into biscotti batter.
