Christmas Eve Pecans

Let's sneak in one more recipe before Christmas......this recipe originally came from a Southern Living magazine. It's just like the warm, cinnamon pecans you can buy at special event booths. The recipe comes together quickly and easily. We absolutely LOVE these!

Christmas Eve Pecans

1 egg white
4 cups pecans
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat egg white until foamy. Add pecans, and stir gently until pecans are coated. Set aside.

Combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Sprinkle over pecans, and stir gently until coated.  Spread pecans in a lightly greased 15x10x1 inch jellyroll pan.  Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Serve warm or cool and store in an airtight container.  Yields 4 cups.
