These are simple, addictive (you've been warned), add a sweet crunch to any salad, and they make great gifts (and people may beg for them - I did, and that's how I got this recipe from some ladies from my church in Colorado).
Here's a link to the Northwestern Salad that these go so well on
2 egg white
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. cold water
2 tsp. salt
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
2 lb. pecans
Beat water and egg white until fluffy.
Mix pecans in and toss to coat.
In a separate bowl combine sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add to pecan mixture. Toss until pecans are coated. Spread on baking sheet and bake at 225* for 1 hour moving occasionally.
Cool prior to using in salad.
These may be stored in the freezer as well for future use.
