Yields: 2 cups
Prep: 5 Mins.
Bake: 30 Mins.
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole pecans
½ cup granulated sugar
1-½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¾ teaspoon fine-grain kosher salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with oil, and set aside.
Pour sugar, cinnamon, and fine-grain kosher salt into a plastic bag, and shake to mix.
Place egg white, water, and vanilla extract into a medium bowl, beat with a hand mixer until slightly foamy, and add pecans; tossing to coat well. Lift pecans out of bowl with a slotted spoon (or spider used in Asian cooking and stir-fry recipes) and place them into the bag of sugar and spices. Shake pecans in bag making sure they are well coated.
Place the coated pecans so they are separated and in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, while tossing with a fork 15 minutes into the baking process. Let cool completely before serving. ~ Enjoy!
