Candied Pecans

In preparation for a dessert I hope to make in the near future I made these today for a garnish. Can you spell I.R.R.E.S.I.S.T.I.B.L.E?! They are super delicious! and easy to make.

I tried to remember where I got the recipe but neglected to write it down when I found it. So if this is like a recipe you have on your blog let me know, I'll be happy to link to your blog and give you the credit.

1 egg white
1 Tablespoon water

Beat with a hand mixer until frothy.

Add: 1 lb. Pecan Halves and stir.

Pour in an avalanche of sugar
 (1 cup)

1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

( I omitted the cinnamon because of what I want to use them for but it would be delicious in there otherwise!) Toss until well coated. Then spread onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake @275° for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool before storing.

Be Blessed!
