Candied Pecans

Candied PecansWe made a delicious batch of these candied pecans and was surprised at how simple it ended up being!
These would also make the perfect little edible gift to share with neighbors, just fill a mason jar and wrap with a ribbon.

TIP: you can add 1/2 -1 tsp of ancho chili powder to the sugar mix for a tasty bit of zing!

* 1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
* 1/2 cup light brown sugar
* 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 4 cups unsalted pecans halves
* 1 large egg white
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon water
* Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper- this is an important step that will make for easy clean up!
* Combine granulated (white) sugar, brown sugar and salt in a bowl.
* In a separate large bowl, beat the egg white, vanilla, and water until stiff peaks form. Whisk by hand or with an electric mixer.
* Add the pecans to the egg whites mixture and use a rubber spatula to gently toss to coat. Add the cinnamon sugar mixture and stir gently until the pecans are well coated.
* Spread the pecans into a single layer on the parchment lined baking sheet.
* Bake for about 40-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
* Remove from the oven and allow the pecans to cool completely on the baking sheet.
* After completely cool, place in an airtight container and store for up to 1 month.
