Sugared Pecans

Yield about 3 1/2 cups


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 3 cups pecan halves

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a 13- x 9- x 2- inch baking pan.

  2. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form; gradually add sugar and salt, beating until very stiff. Fold in pecans. Spread pecan mixture in prepared pan. Bake at 325° for 30 to 35 minutes or until mixture is browned and all butter is absorbed, stirring at 10 minute intervals to coat evenly. Remove to waxed paper while still warm; cool completely. Store pecans in an airtight container.
