Sugared Pecans

Egg white binds the sugar to the pecans.


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pound pecan halves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Beat egg white and water into froth. Place froth mixture in a plastic zip-closure bag, add pecans to coat. Place coated pecans in another zip-closure bag and add sugar mixture and shake well. Pour pecans onto a well-greased shallow baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool on wax paper.
