Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  3. Mix the pecan halves into the egg white.
  4. Stir the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl; add to the pecan and egg white mixture and stir.
  5. Coat the bottom of a jelly roll pan with the softened butter.
  6. Spread the pecan mixture in an even layer in the prepared pan.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, turning occasionally, 45 to 60 minutes.

These are delicious! The only thing I would do different would be to use salted butter next time! I made these to crumble over ice cream for friends, but we were just content to eat these by themselves! Yum! Thanks for the recipe!

I saw this recipe and read all the 5 star reviews and thought it would be good to try a new recipe. I make roasted pecans twice a year and I have never cooked them with butter in the pan before, it sounded good, so thought I would give it a try….big mistake. After 35 mins, the pecans were BURNED! The oven temp is too high and adding butter to the pan made them burn even faster! All nuts (including Pecans) have oil in them..no need to add more. I'll stick with 250 degree oven and no butter from now on!

Perfect balance of sugars with cinnamon flavor. I think the butter was just the touch that is missing from the other recipes I've been trying out. I tried it with 1 lb jar of peanuts because their cheaper to test a recipe on and they came out absolutly delightful. Can't wait to try it on pecans now!! A+ you nailed it!

Stop what you are going and make this recipe. These are so good! I have tried a couple other pecan recipes, and this is far superior.
