Sugar Coated Pecan Halves

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I'm a sucker for pecans.  I love to eat them plain or all "dressed" up.  And this time of year, some of my mom's friends get together and place a huge order of pecans just in time for holiday cooking!  The best part is, you can order them as whole, halves or pieces.  And yes, I'm jumping up and down because I remember having to cut them into pieces during the holidays before mom started ordering them that way.

Since I've been out of my parents house for almost ten years, I started learning new ways to cook things and give some of the items she use to cook, a new twist.  And now I'm giving you my new twist on pecans.  I make these for wedding or baby showers and they are always around the house during the holidays.  Enjoy - and let me know how you like them.

1 egg white
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups pecan halves

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Beat egg white until stiff.  Slowly add brown sugar, beating on medium speed.  Add vanilla.  Fold in pecans and make sure they are coated well.  Place pecans on a greased cookie sheet one at a time.  (If they stick together, they cook together.)  Cook for 30 minutes.
