Our son brought back some cinnamon and sugar coated pecans from the mall. We liked them and set out to make our own. The result was this cinnamon and vanilla rendition. Give them a try.
We love this recipe with the cinnamon vanilla but if you don’t have cinnamon vanilla sugar, you may use a cinnamon and sugar mixture for a very nice snack. For a cinnamon sugar mixture, use one tablespoon cinnamon to 1/4 cup sugar. Be sure to use good quality cinnamon.
1 large egg white
3 cups pecan halves
1/3 cup cinnamon vanilla sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
1. Whisk the egg white in a cup. Pour the egg whites over the nuts, stirring until the nuts are coated with egg white.
2. In a small bowl, stir the cinnamon, vanilla sugar, and salt together. Add the cinnamon sugar mixture to the nuts, a little a time, while stirring.
3. Spread the coated nuts on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes without stirring. Use a spatula to remove the nuts from the hot baking sheet immediately. Allow to cool thoroughly before storing in tightly closed container. Store in a cool place.
