Warning: these are dangerously addictive! They’re sweet, crunchy and salty! I love giving these out as gifts during holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Seal them tight in small jars, tie a cute polka dot ribbon around it and voila, you have a homemade sentiment to bring over to someone’s house. Oh, and did I mention they’re super easy to make? =) Enjoy!!
1 cup white sugar
1 egg white
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pound pecan halves
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
- Mix sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.
- Whisk egg white and water together in a separate bowl until frothy. Toss pecans in the egg white mixture. Mix sugar mixture into pecan mixture until pecans are evenly coated. Spread coated pecans onto a baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until pecans are evenly browned, 1 hour.
