To make cinnamon sugar-coated pecans, toss 1 cup of white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 3/4 teaspoon of salt in one bowl, and beat 1 egg white in another bowl. Once the egg white turns frothy, mix in 1 pound of pecan halves, and dredge them in the sugar mixture. Spread the nuts on a greased baking sheet, and toast them at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour, stirring at regular intervals.
Make Jerry's sugared pecans from the show "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" by whisking together 3 large egg whites, 1 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in a bowl and stirring in 4 cups of pecan halves. Pour 1/2 cup of melted butter into a rimmed baking sheet, followed by the pecan mixture. Bake the nuts at 350 F for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Instead of using egg whites, the 15-minutes candied cinnamon pecan recipe from Creme de la Crumb suggests melting 1/2 cup of sugar in a saucepan and then stirring in 2 cups of whole pecans and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. After the pecans are coated with the sugar mixture, sprinkle them with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and spoon them onto a baking sheet. After they cool for five minutes, break apart the pecan clumps.
