Sugared Pecans

This is a recipe that I make every Christmas, although its good any time of the year!


16 ounces pecan halves
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


Stir the pecans and butter in a 3 1/2-quart crock pot until combined. Add powdered sugar, stirring to coat. Cover and cook on high for 15 minutes. Turn to low and cook uncovered for about 2 hours, or until the nuts are covered with a crisp glaze. Transfer to a bowl, combine spices and sift over nuts, tossing to distribute evenly. Cool before serving.
