Today I am sharing a fun holiday treat that is super easy and fun to make! If you are a nut lover, you will love these cinnamon-y crunchy coated pecans! My family loves any kind of nut, and my girls and husband love these. We have also tried this recipe with almonds, but we prefer pecans because they get very crispy in the oven. These are perfect to bring for a holiday party or to give as a gift to someone in a little jar with a bow. Here’s how we make them!
What you’ll need:
- 1 egg white
- 4 tsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 lb pecan halves
Preheat your oven to 250.
Mix everything except the pecans together. I use a mixer and it gets everything incorporated super fast.
Next, add in all of your pecans and coat them evenly with your mixture.
On a parchment lined baking sheet, evenly spread out your pecans.
You’re going to cook these for an hour, but you need to take them out every 15 minutes and stir them around so that they all get crispy.
Here’s after 15 minutes. They are still very liquidy.
Here is after 30 minutes, they have a lot less liquid.
Here is after 45 minutes, still a tiny bit wet.
Here is after one hour, all the liquid should be gone and they should have a powder consistency.
That’s it! Let them cool completely and store in a sealed container.
So easy and so delish!
