I made this recipe a couple weeks ago and just added a bit more cinnamon. My husband (a very picky eater) couldn't stay away from the nuts! They were litterally gone in a matter of minutes. I'm making these to give as Christmas gifts this year because they taste so good! I would recommend baking in a 9x13 dish rather than on a cookie sheet as the sides of the pan make it much easier to push the nuts around without making a mess when you have to stir the mixture.

I literally just tried this recipe. I was very glad that I found it because my mom just gave me two big bags of pecans a couple of days ago and I had no idea what to do with them. however after just 30 minutes I felt I had to take them out of the oven. it smells like they were burning and it looked like they were burning. I did everything exactly as listed. I saw one other person's review who said the same thing but everyone else says that they followed it exactly and they turned out great. I'm a little confused because I could not see any way that my pecans could have stayed in the oven another 30 minutes Read More

This was exactly what I had been hoping for. I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the egg white and water mixture. Reminds me of the nut snack I had at the Baldknobbers show in Branson Mo. Read More

I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could!!!! My 6 year old daugher and I made these for her class for Texas Day--we were asked to make something with pecans so this was perfect!!! I did follow other reviewers advice and used 1 cup of sugar and a tbs of cinnamon--also made a double batch!! WOW--they were awesome and made the house smell great!! They tasted so good we could not stop eating them--I feared there would be none left for my daughters class!!!!! LOL!!! Thanks for a great and EASY recipe!! I just needed to add something--I was at my daughters school today and was BOMBARDED by the teachers AND kids wanting this recipe!! It was a huge hit--even with 6 year olds!!!!!! Thanks!!! Read More

Wow! Easy and absolutely delicious! I submitted a photo of the finished product and it was hard to stop picking at it during the cooking process! I only had half a pound of pecans but used all the same measurements and it came out perfectly coated and delicious! I will definintely give these out for Christmas. It's much better than the nut kiosk you see in the malls. It's so easy to make its absolutely effortless! A must recipe for the holidays! Read More

Wow! These were SO easy to make - much easier than the candied walnuts on this site where you have to take the sugar syrup to a soft ball stage. I ruin a pan every time I make those but I didn't realize there was such a simpler alternative. These by comparison are a piece of cake. I made them with Splenda and unfortunately they do have a bit of an aftertaste so next time I'll just use real sugar and live a little. I baked them on a parchment covered jelly roll pan so clean-up was a breeze too! Read More
