My sister got this recipe from one of her co-workers and it is seriously amazing!! I love warm and/or glazed nuts and these are fabulous!! Plus, they're so easy! I've tried other recipes similar to this before, but they just never really made the cut. These, however, went above and beyond! We ate them plain mostly, but they were also SUPER yummy on hot fudge sundaes!! I think they would also be great on a salad as well!! If you have ever had a sundae at Denny's, these nuts taste remarkably close to the ones that come on those sundaes!
Anyway you eat them, they're just simply going to be good, so I hope you try them out!!!!
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 egg whites
4 cups pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the butter in a large baking sheet (with sides, of course!). Place the pan in the oven until the butter melts.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon and egg whites. Add pecans and stir until evenly coated. Pour into buttered pan. Bake for 24 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes.
Pour onto wax paper and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
