Old-Fashioned Roasted Pecans
1 egg white
1 tsp water
2-1/4 cups pecan halves
1/2 cup white sugar or sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (105 degrees C). Lightly grease a rimmed baking pan. Beat egg whites and water in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Fold the pecans into the egg white mixture and coat the nuts evenly.
Combine the sugar, salt, and ground cinnamon in a shaker or cup with a lid. While the nuts are still moist, sprinkle the pecans evenly with the sugar mixture. Spread the nuts over the baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, stirring every 15 minutes, about 1 hour. Cool in pan, and store in an airtight container.
These yummy nuts make wonderful gifts for holiday party hostesses, too. OR just hoard and nibble on them yourself.
