Ingredients

  • 3 cups unsalted pecan halves
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush the surface with melted butter. Spread the pecan mixture in an even layer. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, stirring the pecans every 10 minutes.
