This makes a great gift. Put pecans in mason jar and tie lid with ribbon or raffia. My family and friends love them and request them every holiday. Easy and inexpensive gift. Adjust spice to your liking.

  • Whisk sugar, egg whites, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl. Add pecans and toss to fully coat. Spread coated pecans on the buttered baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring and flipping pecans after 10 minutes, until pecans are toasted, about 20 minutes. Cool pecans on baking sheet for 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Make sure the pecans are tossed around on cookie sheet while baking to ensure they don't burn on one side. Careful not to break the foil.
