Sugar-Coated Pecans

Adapted slightly from Allrecipes.Com

2 egg whites
1 tablespoon water
1 pound pecan halves
1 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Grease one baking sheet, or just use parchment paper.

2. In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water until frothy and stiff. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon.

3. Add pecans to egg whites, stir to coat the nuts evenly. Remove the nuts, and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated. Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet.

4. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven, and let it cool. If you like cinnamon, go ahead and sprinkle a bit more cinnamon onto the pecans, and mix them well.

6. Let the pecans cool to room temperature, so that they're crisply, sweetly glazed. ^_^ Store in an airtight container and enjoy alone, sprinkled on top of ice cream, or on top of warm desserts. =)


  1. Those sound good - but DANG that's a lot of sugar!

  2. Oh glazes nicely! =) It ain't healthy, that's for sure. ^_~
