Cinnamon Spiced Pecans-a simple recipe using an egg white, sugar, cinnamon and a dash of salt

Pecans are a great snack food. Full of protein and other healthy benefits. Living in Georgia, we always have lots of Pecans in the freezer. We add them to everything we can think of. Cookies, bars, breads, I’ve even got a few chicken recipes I throw them in.

After testing a recipe for these cookies several times. I found myself with extra egg whites.

I could have made meringue cookiesor an Angel Food Cake,although I didn’t have that many egg whites. I just wanted something snacky, something to nibble on. Something the kids could have after school.

Don’t let the cup of sugar put you off. After stirring these 3-4 times while baking, you loos at least half the sugar making these pecans a lightly sweet, crispy coated, with a light flavor of cinnamon, treat.

About Grace

When I was younger, I was constantly in the kitchen helping my mom bake. It was fun getting to play with the flour and always getting to lick the spoon. I’ve always expressed an interest in baking and now I feel that it’s the right time for me to take over. I am a college student working towards a nursing degree as well as a full-time aunt to the sweetest little kids (they might pop up in some of the posts). I’ve learned most of what I know about baking and cooking from my mom, and I am continuing to self-teach through trial and error, which means plenty of sweets to be eaten. Read more...

    3Hi! Im making these right now, and right after i put them on the oven i started re-reading the recipe aaaaaand i just discovered i should’ve put them on aluminum paper…. I used parchment paper instead -_- is that gonna be a problem?


    • Joan Hayes says

      Parchment paper is fine, it just moves when you go to stir the pecans while the foil will stay molded to the tray.
