Candied Pecans

These pecans are amazingly addicting.  They are courtesy of the blog Just Putzing Around the Kitchen.

  • 4-5 cups of pecans, halved
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 300. Begin by whipping the egg white until frothy.  Add in the vanilla, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Mixture will be thick.  Add to the pecans in a large mixing bowl.  Mix well to ensure the pecans are completely coated.  Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, using a fork to make sure the pecans are evenly spread, and not too clumpy.  Bake for 20 minutes, then let cool completely and store in a sealed container.
