Candied Pecans

My version of candied pecans...

Sort pecan halves.
Measure out 1 cup granulated sugar.  I also use cinnamon, allspice and a pinch of salt.
Whisk two egg whites and one Tablespoon of cold water until frothy.
Pour in sugar, spices and salt into egg mixture.
Add pecans, and stir until pecans are coated in mixture.
Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Try to spread out in one even layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven, and let cool.  Once they are cooled, break apart, eat and enjoy!
 Lots of yummy sugar bits.
Caution:  these are very addictive!

I normally give these away as gifts during Christmas.  
I have named them:  Jerry Ann's Nuts
Yes, it can be taken that way.
