  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  3. Mix the pecan halves into the egg white.
  4. Stir the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl; add to the pecan and egg white mixture and stir.
  5. Coat the bottom of a jelly roll pan with the softened butter.
  6. Spread the pecan mixture in an even layer in the prepared pan.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, turning occasionally, 45 to 60 minutes.

Perfect balance of sugars with cinnamon flavor. I think the butter was just the touch that is missing from the other recipes I've been trying out. I tried it with 1 lb jar of peanuts because the...

Delicious! Followed another reviewer and doubled everything but the nuts. Used half pecans and half almonds, yum!

Stop what you are going and make this recipe. These are so good! I have tried a couple other pecan recipes, and this is far superior.

:O I cannot stop eating this !!! Soooo good ! Thank you so much for the recipe had no idea these were so easy to make ..

Followed the recipe exactly. Used a ton of different kinds of nuts. Absolutely 100% delicious! HIGHLY recommended.

Made this recipe, was fantastic! Years ago a co-worker brought in nuts like these an I'm on a search to find that recipe. Think I found it. Thanks so much for posting!!
