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.Continue Reading
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.Learn more about Nuts & Grains
