- You’ll need pecans! These are great to buy in the fall but buy in bulk because it’s cheaper and you’ll want to make a double batch of these pecans!
- Large baking sheet – perfect for giving your pecans space to bake.
- Cinnamon, Sugar, and Brown Sugar!
How to make Cinnamon Sugar Pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, beat egg whites and water until a stiff peaks foam.
Add water and vanilla to the beaten eggs and mix.
Toss pecans in the mixture until fully coated.
Finally, mix cinnamon, sugar (both kinds), and salt in a large bowl.
