Maple Cinnamon Pecans

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Pecans are one of my family's favorite foods. I like to have them on hands for snacks, salads and baked goods. During the holidays I like to make these sweet pecans for munching and to use as gifts. I love how they are very simple to make, using ingredients that are always in the pantry!

Maple Cinnamon Pecans

 1 egg white
2 T real maple syrup
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 lb pecan halves
parchment paper

1.Preheat oven to 300* . Whisk egg white until frothy in a large bowl. Whisk in maple syrup, brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Add pecans, stirring to coat all of the pecans.

2.Place pecans in a single layer on  a parchment  lined jelly roll pan. Bake at 300* for 20-25 minutes, or until pecans are toasted and a crunchy crust forms on them. Stir halfway through the cooking time.Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container when completely cooled.
