Candied Pecans

Here is the last recipe for the season. This is another super simple recipe and one that is incredibly addictive.

Candied Pecans - Ingredients

Candied Pecans

1 tsp. Cold Water
1 Egg White
1 lb. Pecan Halves
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. Salt

Beat water and egg white until frothy and just until peaks begin to form. Mix pecans into egg until fully coated. In small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour sugar mix over pecans and toss until fully covered. Spread evenly on cookie sheet. Bake at 225° for 1 hour, stirring about every 15 minutes.

There really isn’t much to say about this recipe, as simple as it is. There are no special tools or techniques needed really other than a decent mixer or a whole lot of stamina to beat the egg white. I was first introduced to these years ago when I was still working. One of the guys I worked with had his wife make this for every holiday party. I was hooked the first time I had them and begged the recipe. I’ve been making them pretty much every year since.

    1. No, but I’m not much of a fan of the spicy and my stomach would hate me. That said, I could easily see a bit of cayenne pepper added to this might give it a bit of that kick you are looking for. You could try maybe substituting the water with with a liquid, like a spiced oil or something. Not 100% sure how that would effect the egg white, but it is only one egg and would be easy enough to test out.
