Sugared Pecans

After a hectic week of preparations, school is out for summer!  There's no feeling quite like that first Monday morning you wake up and realize you've got nowhere to be.  :-)  I plan to throw myself at several cooking and sewing projects over the next two and a half months, so stay tuned!

Speaking of cooking, let's talk about today's treat!  Maybe it's just a southern thing, but it seems like every mall, craft show, gun show, carnival, and holiday market has at least a couple peddlers stirring giant vats of candied pecans.  The aroma usually hits my nose about two steps in, and I find myself turning out my pockets and digging in my purse for loose change.

I cooked up some sugared pecans of my own this afternoon, and I'm proud to say they were just as delicious as any I've had out.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, as I'll be sharing a dinnertime recipe featuring these little guys.

From Southern Food

1 egg white
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups pecan halves

Beat egg white until foamy; slowly beat in the brown sugar and flour. Add salt and vanilla flavoring, then fold in pecans. Transfer pecans to a greased baking pan and bake at 250° for about 45 minutes.

Pin It!
