Sugared Pecans

Yesterday  my neighbour Karen popped  over for a  few minutes with an early Christmas  gift
.... Home made treats.
Karen and her hubby John are heading to Florida next week  for  4 months so she was  spreading  holiday cheer earlier than usual this year...to all the  neighbours
Inside a  cheery Christmas Santa tin  4   selections from Buckeyes, Pecan shortbread,    toffee bark and  my newest  rave  fav sugared pecans.....Sensational!

This recipe has been around for years but I have never tried it..... I am this year with a bag of pecans my Mom brought back from Florida......
Karen has kindly shared her recipe.. in fact she just rhymed it off from memory.. as Karen said ..

1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 pound pecan halves
1 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Grease one baking sheet.

.In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water until frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Add pecans to egg whites, stir to coat the nuts evenly. Remove the nuts, and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated. Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet. .Bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.

``  Can you believe they are  so easy to make``Karen found the recipe at Allrecipes.

Won`t these  be a nice treat to go with my afternoon tea
 Such nice neighbours........

Rosemary, what a thoughtful gift from your neighbor. I love the recipe, this is something I'll have to try for Carl this year.


I too have never had sugared pecans. They look delish.
