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.
