Candied Pecans - Feingold Stage One

4 cups (about 16 ounces) of pecans
1 egg white
1 TB of water

Combine one egg white with 1 TB of water. Beat for a couple minutes until frothy. Add pecans and stir well.

In another bowl combine:

1/3 cup white sugar (I use organic from Costco)
1/3 cup brown sugar (Domino Light Brown Sugar)
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cloves (omit for stage one)
1 tsp salt

Pour mixture over pecans and stir well. Place in a 9x13 baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Stir half way through. I set my timer for 15 minutes so I don’t forget to stir them. Allow to cool before serving.

I added a few almonds, cashews, and walnuts as well to try them out. They were all really good! But the walnuts and the pecans were the only nuts that the sugar would stick to well. 

These are a great snack or treat for school lunches or movie night. Or for a homemade Christmas gift. Put in a decorated plastic bag or tin from the dollar store. My kids love these.
