In my quest to simplify Christmas,I don't make a lot of cookies and candy anymore, but I love these sugared pecans.When I saw the price I almost decided I don't need them that bad, but in the end I gave in and decided to splurge. They really are worth it!
I'm sure you could use almonds or cashews in this recipe as well.
1 egg white
1 Tbsp water
1 pound pecan halves
1 cup white sugar... I think you could cut this back to 3/4 cup.
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2. Grease one baking sheet.
3. In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water till frothy. In separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt and cinnamon.
4. Add pecans to the egg white, stir to coat the nuts evenly. Toss the nuts into the sugar mixture until coated. A ziplock bag works well. Spread the nuts out on the greased baking sheet.
5. Bake at 250 for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.
