I'm not typically a "nut" person. My friend had my husband and I over for dinner and she made these and put them in a salad. My husband isn't normally a nut person either but he begged me to get the recipe from her (not typical). You can eat them plain but we like them in a simple salad with balsamic vinegarette dressing. Oh so good!
- Preheat oven to 275.
- Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
- Beat egg white until stiff.
- Add brown sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- Mix in pecans and stir until evenly coated; pout on cookie sheet and spread out.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until browned.
These are my favorite! I have the oven at 300, though, since they don't seem to get crispy-crunchy otherwise. And I line my cookie sheet with parchment paper. The nuts don't stick at all. Try maple flavoring, also - and walnuts along with the pecans. Delicious!
Very tasty! :) I am sure the guys at DH's office are goign to enjoy munching on these. Thanks for the recipe!
I am surprised I have not yet rated this recipe being I have made these so many times. This recipe makes a great little snack, especially if you take the liberty of adding just a touch of spice, as I usually do...I like about a tsp. of cinnamon and a half tsp. of fresh grated nutmeg, and just the smallest pinch of salt. I actually like to get my hands in the mess when I'm coating the nuts so I can lick off the yumminess. I love using these in a salad of greens, Feta or bleu cheese, crumbled bacon, apples or pomegranate seeds, and a good balsamic dressing...a fantastic salad coarse for about any dinner menu. This recipe has been, and will continue to be, made often. Thanks for sharing.
