Old-Fashioned Roasted Pecans

These pecans are delicious on peanut butter cookies or on a fantastic spinach salad.

1 egg white

1 tbsp water

2 1/4 cups pecan halves

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 225˚. Lightly grease a rimmed baking pan. Combine the egg white and water in a mixing bowl; beat until fluffy. Fold in the pecans to coat evenly. Combine the sugar, salt, and ground cinnamon in a shaker or cup with a lid. Dust the pecans evenly with the sugar mixture. Spread the nuts over the prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, stirring every 15 minutes, about 1 hour. Cool on pan, and store in an airtight container.

Makes 8 servings.
