Candied Pecans

Collegiate Culinaire: Old Fashioned Roasted Pecans

Once again, I’m in the midst of potluck madness this week. Another reliable standby is this roasted pecans recipe, which always seem to be a big hit with more mature crowds (children aren’t big fans).

Don’t they look festive? Enjoy!


2 1/2 cups of pecan halves

1 egg white

1 tbsp. water

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 tsp. salt (more if you’d like a salty-sweet treat)

1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


-Preheat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a cookie sheet.

-Combine egg white and water, fold in pecans, coat evenly. Combine the sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl.

-Dust pecans evenly with sugar mix. Spread the nuts over the pan.

-Bake in preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, stirring every fifteen minutes for about an hour.

-Cool on pan and store in an air-tight container.
