Candied Pecans

IMG_9421

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!!

Ingredients:

1 cup white sugar

1 egg white

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 pound pecan halves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Mix sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until pecans are evenly browned, 1 hour.
