Oven Roasted Pecans
Pecans are another traditional Thanksgiving favorite for everyone. Since we like to make pecan pies, it’s no trouble to make these the same time the night before our big feast.
You Will Need:
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of butter, melted
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups pecans (or more – if you happen to have lots, you just may need to make a little bit more of the mix)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar firmly packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Combine sugar, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a plastic zipper bag and set aside.
Melt the butter and then add in the vanilla and egg white and beat until all ingredients are blended together. Stir in the pecans, making sure each one is well coated with the liquid mixture. Then, transfer the pecans into the plastic bag with the dry ingredients and shake, shake, shake until they are all nicely coated with it.
Place on a lined baking pan (I use foil or parchment paper – both work just as well and help make it easier to clean up) and bake in a 350 degree oven for 4-5 minutes, then turn over and bake another 4-5 minutes until nice and roasted.
