"These are a year-round favorite in our house. We've made several variations and still come back to this one as our all-time favorite. Hand-shelled pecans from Grandma's tree, with a vanilla-orange sugar coating that gets its depth from cinnamon, pepper, rosemary, and a bit of Kahlua® and Grand Marnier®."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

large egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoons
orange-flavored liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
1 1/2 teaspoons
coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®)
ground black pepper
finely chopped fresh rosemary
tangerine, finely zested
shelled pecan halves
This recipe doesn't tell you when to add the Grand Marnier and the Kahlua, so I just added it with the extracts. This is a good variation on traditional spiced pecans that are served this time of year, but this has a nice twist...a subtle hint of orange. I couldn't taste the rosemary at all and I thought that was an interesting addition, so I think I will double that next time. These will be gone in no time, they taste great!
