Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

This will be a pretty fantastic week. I don’t know if you’ve heard it or not, but today VanillaWeek starts! That’s right, my friends, a whole week dedicated to vanilla!

1 pound pecans (and/or almonds)
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg white
1/2 tsp salt (or your preference)
2 tsp water

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper or non-stick foil.

Mix sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large Ziploc bag.

Beat the egg whites, vanilla and water with a fork in a large bowl until foamy.

Add the pecans (or almonds) to the egg white mixture and mix until well coated.

Pour the pecans into the Ziploc bag, seal it and shake until they are well covered with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Spread them out on the prepared baking tray to form a single layer.

Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Try not to eat them all at once.
