Spiced Pecans

I forgot to take a picture of this one, and then they were gone.  They are so yummy.  The kids even loved them, and they usually aren't nut fans.  I looked at a couple recipes and combined them.  And didn't write it down, of course.  But this is what I think I put in there.

1# pecans
1 egg white
1 T water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp chili powder

Mix together egg white and water until foamy in a big bowl.  In a different bowl mix together sugar and spice.  (And everything nice.)  Toss pecans in egg whites until coated.  Sprinkle the sugar mixture on top and toss until coated.  Spread out on a cookie sheet or roasting pan.  Bake at 325 for 20 minutes.  Let cool slightly in pan, and then cool the rest of the way on wax paper.
