The glaze for these roasted pecans is made of water, egg white, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, and salt.
- 1 egg white
- 4 teaspoons water
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 pound pecan halves
- Preheat an oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Beat the egg in a bowl until frothy; whisk the water and vanilla into the egg. Stir the sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the egg mixture. Add the pecans; stir to coat completely. Spread the pecans onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Roast the pecans in the preheated oven, stirring about every 15 minutes, until the coating forms a glaze, about 1 hour. Allow to cool on the baking sheet at least 10 minutes before serving.
