Whether you pronounce it “pee-can” or “puh-con” these are delicious!
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound pecan halves
3/4 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of salt
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees (F).
Beat the water, vanilla and egg white in a large bowl until foamy. Stir in the pecans.
In a separate bowl combine the sugar, ground cinnamon and salt. Gradually add the sugar mixture to the pecans making sure every nut is coated.
Pour the pecans into a 9″ x 13″ pan and roast for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Let the pecans cool and store them in an airtight container. (Not that you will be storing them very long because they’re addicting!)
