Warning.... if you are making them for gifts... package them quickly before everyone eats
them on you.
1 pound pecan halves
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
One thing I love when baking, is using my grandmothers mixing bowl. I have a couple of them . One has a few cracks inside, and I know it is only a matter of time, but I cherish the memories.
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2.Beat egg white with water until fluffy.
3. Fold pecans into egg whites until well coated.
4. Mix cinnamon, sugar and salt together then fold
coated pecans into the dry mixture.
The first year I did these, I did not use parchment paper on the cookie sheets and let me tell you, it was a pain in the you know what to get them off. The following years, I used the parchment paper and the pecans were flawless.
The year I made these, I gave them all away in mugs with my friends initials on them. these were only three of about 20 mugs. Last year, some of my friends got wine mugs (beer glasses for the guys).
