IF YOU HAVE ANY LEFT AFTER MAKING THE PIE:

Spiced pecans (Karoline Boehm Goodnick, November 24, 2010, Boston Globe)

Butter (for the pan)
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
1 pound large pecan halves
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Set the oven at 225 degrees. Butter a rimmed baking sheet.

2. In a bowl large enough to hold all the nuts, whisk the egg white and water until frothy. Stir in the pecans; mix until they are well coated.

3. In another bowl, mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pour the sugar mixture over the nuts and toss well. Spread the nuts on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, or until very crisp.
