¾ c. sugar 1 egg white 2 T. water 3 c. pecan halves
Heat oven to 250º. Put sugar in shallow dish (a pie plate works well). Beat egg white and water slightly in bowl. Add pecans to egg mixture, about ½ c. at a time. Stir with fork until well moistened. Lift out, letting excess syrup drain off. Toss nuts in sugar mixture until well coated. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake 40 minutes or until crusty. Cool. Makes 3 cups.
You can also add 2 t. cinnamon, ¼ t. cloves, and ¼ t. nutmeg to the sugar and make spiced nuts.
