Day 8: Candied Pecans

It's Day 8 of baking.

I've gained about 5 pounds already this holiday season.....and it's not even Christmas yet!

At least I can feel a little better about myself because this next recipe features the "good fat" found in nuts.

Lots and lots of the "good fat."

I just ate half a pan of "good fat."

Candied Pecans
Preheat oven to 275.
In a small bowl, mix one egg white with one tbsp water.
Mix in a bag of pecans, 1/4 cup sugar, lots of cinnamon, and a tsp of salt.
Stir and spread out onto a coated baking sheet. Roast in the oven for an hour, stirring occasionally.

They are so addicting. Be warned.

I ate one million.

And the ones I didn't eat, I'm giving away.

Linda, thanks for being a huge help to me this season. Not only do I have you and Bobby to thank for making cornhole boards for my family, but you have allowed me to be your cake decorating apprentice as well. You are so creative, and your artwork is amazing! I have so many great memories playing at the Deaton house, jumping on the trampoline, and laughing until the wee hours of the morning. Thank you for always encouraging us to make those home videos, to act, and to entertain. Those were the best days!

    Yum! I have been looking for a good candied nut recipe to use as a topping for my eggnog tiramisu! This one looks like a winner.

    yes--they are so good! I had a fairly small bag of pecans, so adapt the sugar/cinnamon as you see fit. The more sugar the better :-)
