Texas Glazed Pecans Will Bring Joy to Your Table
Texas Glazed Pecans
1 egg white
4 teaspoons water
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound pecan halves
Preheat an oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat the egg in a bowl until frothy; whisk the water and vanilla into the egg. Stir the sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the egg mixture. Add the pecans; stir to coat completely. Spread the pecans onto the prepared baking sheet.
Roast the pecans in the preheated oven, stirring about every 15 minutes until the coating forms a glaze, about 1 hour. Allow to cool on the baking sheet at least 10 minutes before serving.
