The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Sugar coated pecans

One of my favorites. This is great for a party snack too.

What you’ll need:

1 egg white
1 Tbl water
1 lb pecan halves
1 c sugar
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside. In a large bowl, whip together the egg white and water until it’s frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add pecans to egg white mixture and stir to coat the nuts evenly. Remove the nuts using a slotted spoon and add them to the sugar mixture bowl. Toss well to coat in sugar. Spread them onto the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Cost:
eggs – $1.09/ dozen
pecans – $3.00
sugar – $1.99/4 lb bag
cinnamon – $1.85
Total – $3.47
