As I mentioned before, I was home last week for Thanksgiving. I decided to try a new recipe (of course I found it on Pinterest, if you haven’t already, I highly suggest you join!).
I decided to try a holiday recipe (although let’s be real, I’m obsessed so I’ll probably make them year round):
Cinnamon Sugar Pecans
These were super easy to make:
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1lb. pecan halves
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (I left this out)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a gallon sized freezer bag mix together the egg whites, vanilla extract, and water. In a separate gallon sized freezer bag mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add pecans to the bag with the egg white mixture. Seal the bag and shake around the pecans until they are evenly coated. Transfer the coated pecans to the bag with the sugar mixture. Seal the bag and shake around until the pecans are evenly coated with the sugar mixture. Spread the pecans on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
I love how simple these are, because with some nice packaging, these will make great Christmas gifts.
