I thought I'd share my candied pecan recipe in case anyone is interested.
It is super easy and they are delicious! Little jars or bags of these make great gifts for anyone. It is a relatively inexpensive gifts to make, too, at about $2 per jar.
1 lb pecan halves
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 Tablespoon water
1 gallon ziploc bag
In the ziploc bag, mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Beat the egg whites and the water into a froth. Add the pecans and stir to coat.
Toss the pecans into the ziploc bag and shake it around until they are covered with the sugar mixture.
Pour into shallow baking dish (I used two 9x13" pans) and bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Once cooled, put them into six small mason jars, tie twine or yarn around the lid and attach a little gift tag with the recipe on it. I used store bought tags that I got after Christmas last year, but you can be more crafty than me and make your own tags! Or, you could print these from the Pioneer Woman...
