Yummy Treats

For my post today, I am sharing some treats with you that I made for far off family members (small disclaimer-I got the idea to do the Vanilla Cinnamon Roasted Pecans from a fellow DT member-she made almonds, but I love pecans) Lindsay challenged us to make a tag today-I took a little bit of creative license with "tag" and made a label for my Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans. I put them in a tin that I washed and repurposed from some mini Pirouette cookies- covered the outside with some pretty Christmas patterned paper, tied a soft sage satin ribbon around it in a pretty bow, and printed the label from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Vintage Christmas Labels digistamp set on red cardstock, cut it out, and attached it with hot glue.

Another treat I made was Pumpkin bread,tied with a red satin ribbon and topped off with a label freebie that I found on the net.
Here's the recipe for the pecans:
Vanilla Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans
4 cups pecans
1 egg white
1 Tbsp cold water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c. sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Beat egg white, vanilla, and water until frothy but not stiff, then add pecans and toss to coat. Mix cinnamon, sugar, and salt, then pour over pecans and toss to coat. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake at 250 degrees for about an hour.
I am linking up to these challenges:
