I LOVE these darn things. In fact, I've been making these pecans since I was married to my ex-husband (Cam's dad). Every year he would get a 5 pound bucket of pecans for Christmas and his mom and I would try to find every way we could to use those pecans up! We would be making praline pecans, pecan pies, pecan whatever we could find with the name in them!
They are very similar to the ones you find at the mall but so much better!
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups pecans
½ cup packed light brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Beat egg white, vanilla, and water until frothy with mixer. Add pecans to egg white mixture and fold together until well combined. Mix sugar, salt, and cinnamon together and coat the pecan mixture with the sugar mixture. Bake on greased cookie sheet for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. You will want the pecans completely dry when they come out of the oven.
