 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Butter, unsalted
  • 2 lg Eggs, whites only
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1 c Sugar, granulated
  • 1 qt Pecan halves
  • 2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon, ground


Set aside stick of butter to melt in a long pan. (Don't use a pan that has
depressions around the side, such as for lasagna.) Preheat oven to 300

Separate eggs; sprinkle a pinch of salt onto the egg whites. (You can
reserve the yolks to make custards.) Beat the whites to form soft peaks.
Gradually add the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Fold in pecan

Turn out pecans and spread OVER the melted butter (don't stir them in).
Cook for 15 minutes. Take out the pan and stir the nuts. Cook another 10
minutes, take out and stir. Repeat until the nuts are separated and all the
butter is absorbed (a little over one hour).

BE PATIENT!!! For a long time it will look totally disgusting and you will
be sure I gave you a bogus recipe, but it works! Theoretically you can use
other nuts, but I've tried both almonds and walnuts and was disappointed...
