What You Need to Make Pecan Candy

1 lb. PECANS
1 cup SUGAR
½ tsp SALT
1 Tbsp WATER

How to make Pecan Candies

Buy a pound of pecan halves. When buying, be sure to choose pecans that are in good shape
…a bag of broken and busted up pecans doesn't look as pretty in a dish.

In a bowl, combine the cinnamon, sugar, and salt, and then mix well.
Set that bowl aside, and in another bowl, combine 1 egg white and 1 Tbsp. of water.
Whisk the egg white and water into a frothy foam.
Add the pecan halves into the egg white mix.
By hand, mix the pecans until coated thoroughly.
Once the pecans are coated completely, transfer then into the dry mix bowl. Still using your hand,
mix the pecans in the cinnamon sugar until they are coated well.
On an ungreased baking sheet, spread the coated pecans into a single layer.
Place the baking sheet in an oven preheated to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the baking sheet every 10 minutes to give the pecans a stir and spread them out again; this will let the pecans
bake evenly and keep from sticking together.

After a total of 30 minutes baking time, remove the pecans for a final stir, then set aside to cool.
That's it. As soon as they're cool enough to eat, then eat away.
Be sure to allow the pecans to cool completely before sealing in a container.

These sugar pecan candies make a great holiday treat or anytime treat. My mom makes them all the time for family gatherings and they're
a sure fire hit.
