Sooooo good! My mother made these every year for Christmas. They are an instant hit with everyone who tries them. Very easy to make, too!
- Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
- Beat egg white until stiff. Add brown sugar to egg white and beat until smooth. Fold pecans into mixture, using a large wooden spoon and stir until nuts are well coated. Drop by spoon onto un-greased cookie sheets. (About 2 pecan halves per spoonful).
- Bake until golden brown and meringue is completely dry - about 1 hour.
Tasty little gems. They are easy to make. Better is you sprinkle a little kosher or coarse salt just before baking or hot right out of the oven. Started the egg white in the food processor. Even in the small bowl 1 egg white is just not enough to do in that effectively....finished by hand. 1 batch produced 80 meringues for me. Had I followed the 2 halves per rule there would have been 110-120. Could just spread it thin and then break it up when cooled. I will do that in future if I feel lazy.
