Candied Pecans

Have you ever been in one of those huge wildlife stores and smelled the roasting candied nuts? 
I think that they smell heavenly. 

Well, this recipe comes pretty close to that heavenly smell, 
but you luckily get more than just a little bag. 

My family goes crazy for them and I had to make 3 different batches this year so that I could get a picture of them.

Candied Pecans
4 cups of pecan halves (you could use other nuts also)
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine egg whites, water, and pecans.  Stir until well covered.  In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Pour over pecans and mix well.

Spread pecans on a baking sheet in a thin layer and bake for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes.  Allow to cool and place in an air-tight container.
