- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix sugar, cinnamon & salt in a plastic resealable bag. In a medium sized bowl, whisk egg whites, water and vanilla until frothy. You can use a fork or an electric mixer works fine as well. Add pecans to the egg white mixture and stir making sure the pecans are all covered with the egg white mixture. Pour coated pecans into the resealable bag and seal. Shake bag until all of the pecans are coated with the sugar mixture. Spread out pecans into a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour making sure to stir the pecans every 20 minutes.
