Pecans are everywhere this time of year. They also make a great present. This week, I am sharing two ways to prepare pecans to be given away as gifts or eaten throughout the season.

1 Egg White

1 tablespoon Water

1 cup Sugar

3/4 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 pound Pecan Halves

Preheat oven to 250℉.

Whip egg white and water in a mixing bowl until frothy. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, sat and cinnamon.

Toss pecans in egg white mixture and stir to coat evenly. Remove pecans from egg white mixture, pour into sugar mixture and toss to coat. Spread pecans on a greased baking sheet.

Bake until nuts are toasted and fully glazed, about 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Cool thoroughly. Break into pieces if necessary.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
