1/4 cup butter
2 egg whites
1 lb. of pecans
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Melt butter and spread on a cookie sheet. Then pour the pecans into a large bowl.
Mix in all of the other ingredients, then spread in the pan making sure that the pecans are spread out flat. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour or until dry.
Stir the pecans every 10 minutes during cooking so that the sugar mixture coats the pecans well. (I only stirred them once...10 minutes before they were done, but they still turned out great!) Be sure not to overcook them or they will taste burned.As soon as they look dry, remove from oven. Cool and store in an air tight container.
And don't they look delicious? I had Matt try one, and he didn't want to stop! I almost had to use force.
These are SO simple, and SO tasty. Perfect for the busy holiday season!
