Brooke Cooks - Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

These nuts should also be called "Bet you can't eat just one" - J and I ate the ENTIRE batch of these nuts in one day (they're pretty dangerous...).  But oh my goodness are these delicious.  They are just like the nuts that they sell at the Sugarloaf craft fair each year for $5-6 for a little cone - plus they are so much easier to make than I ever expected.  Let me know if you try these - I think they would make excellent gifts and they would also be great to set out when family or friends come over (again, granted you can resist eating them all!).  Hope you enjoy!

1 egg white
1/2 Tb water
2 tsp vanilla
1 Lb pecans
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  With a mixer, beat egg whites, water, and vanilla until foamy.  Add sugar and cinnamon.  With the mixer on the lowest setting (or by hand to keep pecans whole), still pecans into sugar and egg mixture.

Spread pecans onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Enjoy fresh out of the oven or after pecans have cooled.

I got this recipe from

Oh my gosh these look SO good. I can smell them now just looking at them. Maybe I will actually have to try to make these! I will let you know if I do. :)

Thank you so much, everyone!! I am so happy I finally tried making them - I have LOVED these for years. My sister and I used to get them at the mall together, but after that stand closed years ago, I would wait for the Sugarloaf craft festival each year so I could get more. I'm amazed at how easy they are to make. Tonight I'm going to try making them with walnuts. I injured my feet and I think I deserve a pick-me-up (quite literally!). Thanks for stopping by :)

Oh, these sound wonderful! I have made most of my extended family's Christmas presents for a few years now, so this may be the gift this year. :)
