Sugar-Glazed Pecans

These are so yummy! My kids (and their daddy) can't stay out of 'em.

They were easy, too. I got the recipe from AOL food. I used these in a salad for our Easter picnic.


4 egg, whites only
1/2 cup ginger ale
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups sugar
8 cups pecan halves

Cooking Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to 250 F
2. Spray two (15x10x1-inch) baking pans with nonstick coating spray.
3. Separate eggs and in a large bowl whisk egg whites.
4. Add ½ a cup ofginger ale, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, sugar and
pecan halves.
5. Now fold this together until the nuts are evenly coated.
6. Spread the mixture out onto the baking pans.
7. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the coating is absorbed and the pecans
appear dry, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
8. Separate the pecans into a single layer with two forks.
9. When they are cooled store at room temperature in an airtight container.

I was searching for a recipe like this at Christmas time! These sound so good (and the salad, too).
