Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

What is a better sweet treat for the holidays then Sugar Cinnamon Pecans?! Not only do they make your house smell freakin fabulous while they are baking, but they taste so delicious! I got so many compliments on these little sweet pecans and I shared this recipe so many times because people just loved them! 🙂 I put them in a cute little mason jar and gave them as Christmas gifts this year. I also kept a bunch for Jesse and I because we couldn’t stop eating them. Seriously, if you can mix together few ingredients, I highly recommend you try making these Cinnamon Sugar Pecans. Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ C Sugar
  • 1 ¼ C Brown Sugar
  • 2 TBS Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3-4 C Pecans
  • 2 egg whites

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. And Spray a cookie sheet with a thick amount of non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl beat your two egg whites until nice and frothy.

  4. In a separate mixing bowl combine sugars, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Mix everything together really well.
  5. Place your pecans in your egg whites first and mix REALLY well! This step ensures that the cinnamon sugar coating will stick to the pecans.
  6. Then transfer the pecans to the cinnamon sugar mixture and coat all the pecans.
  7. Then place them on your cookie sheet in a single layer. They can be next to each other and touching each other, just not piled on top of each other.

  9. Finally place in the oven for about 45-55 mins until the cinnamon mixture is nice and hard. (If the underside of the pecans is still a little wet after the 45-55 mins, its ok, you don’t have to put it back in the oven, it will dry eventually.)
  10. If you don’t devour them all at once 😉 then place in an air tight sealed container for storage.

Enjoy!
