These AMAZING sugar coated pecans are perfect for a great gift OR to eat yourself! I don’t know about you, but every time I walk by a stand selling specialty nuts I salivate over the delicious smell! But they are usually soooo expensive! So I decided to try and make my own. It was actually VERY easy, smelled great as they cooked, and I was pleased as punch with the finished product. Go ahead & try them for yourself!

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 TAB vanilla
  • 1 lb pecan halves (or walnuts if you prefer)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 teas salt
  • 1 teas ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet. In a small bowl , whip together egg whites and vanilla until frothy. In a separate bowl mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Add pecans to egg white mixture & toss to coat evenly. Move nuts to sugar mixture & again toss to coat evenly. Spread nuts on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 250 F (120 C) for 1 – 1  1/2 hours. Cool & get ready to eat the whole batch – they are that good! Enjoy!!


  1. I make pretty much the same thing but without the vanilla or salt. May have to give that a try this year! This is what we give to people instead of cookies and they are always a hit! I haven't made any yet this year... you're making me hungry!

  2. ooohhh! I love this! I have always wanted to make some myself. Thanks for the recipe. Happy to be following along!

  3. Mmmmmm I'm so excited to try this recipe. They look yummy.
