Weird recipe...cooking in butter like that. BUT HEY!! What totally addicting results! I need to stop eating these before ....umm...before they're all gone! Very easy with totally satisfying results. Still a weird cooking method, tho. Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers.
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 16 ounces pecan halves
- 1⁄2 cup butter
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Beat egg whites until soft peaks begin to form. Add sugar, salt, and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form and turn glossy. Fold in nuts and coat well with the egg white mixture.
- Melt butter in a 9x13 baking pan by placing pan in the oven. Evenly spread coated nuts over melted butter in pan.
- Bake for 30 minutes, stirring and turning nuts about every 8 minutes, or until butter no longer remains in pan. Place hot nuts on foil and allow to cool. May be stored in an airtight container for several weeks.
