If you need a last minute gift or a snack to take to Christmas dinner, these Candied Pecans are SO easy to make and taste amazing!


  • 1 pound pecan halves
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon salt


Add 1 tablespoon of water to the egg white.  Beat with an electric mixer until frothy — not foamy (it only takes about 20 or 30 seconds).  Add sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Stir until you have a thick, gooey mixture, well mixed.  Gently fold in pecan halves until pecans are well-coated.

Spread pecans on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 225 degrees for 45 minutes  BUT every 15 minutes use a spatula and gently turn.

Let pecans cool.  Loosen from pan and put in airtight container.

Be careful . . . you can’t eat just one.

My name is Patty & I'm a full-time homemaker. I've been a full-time homemaker most of my adult life. I thought I'd probably go back to work when my kids were grown, and I did briefly, but I came back home as soon as my first grandchild was born. I learned that home was my favorite place to be and homemaking was and is my calling.
