A quick, simple way to satisfy a sweet tooth. The combination of spice and toasted flavors accompany the sweetness perfectly on these pecans. I lean on these when I am trying to do right but honestly, they are good in general. And on ice cream?! I digress.
- 1 c sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 10 oz pecan halves
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine the sugar, salt and cinnamon, then set aside. Whisk the egg whites until they are a little frothy and bubbly. Add the water and vanilla to the beaten egg whites, then add in the pecans until all the nuts are coated in the egg white mix.
Next, pour in sugar mixture and stir until all pecans are coated. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, put into a 400ᴼ oven, and. bake for 20 minutes, flipping the nuts halfway through to ensure even baking on both sides.
Remove from oven and cool completely. You’ll have a sweet and crunchy snack to enjoy.
