Frankenstein’s Toenails

by Lauryn on October 26, 2012

Since Halloween is around the corner, this delicious recipe completely appropriate. Although they look like toenails, they certainly don’t taste like them. I gave out a few of these mini pecan-filled pumpkins & one friend asked for a larger pumpkin with extra nuts. They’re THAT good. These “toenails” are eerily delicious. Quick skinny tip: pumpkin pie spice [ found at local grocery stores ] is amazing in tea, coffee, baked goods & on sweet potatoes. It’s a natural sweetener full of allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon & ginger.

Frankenstein’s Toenails

2 cups of unsalted pecan halves

2 egg whites

1/2 cup of organic pure sugar

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 drops of almond oil

Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease a cookie sheet with almond oil. Mix pecans, egg whites and organic sugar up in a small bowl. Add pumpkin spice and cinnamon. Mix all together. Scatter across a your greased cookie sheet. Put in the oven for 30 minutes. After the pecans are done break them up with a knife. Add to small baskets or bins [ I chose small pumpkins ] and gift to a friend- they’ll definitely ask for more!
