On the Tenth Day of Christmas Cookies

I always assumed that making candied nuts was complicated.  Not so!!  These are just about the easiest treats to make!!  They make great gifts (if you can keep your hands off them!) and are great to have on hand during the holidays for guests!  They are also a delicious way to use up your egg whites from recipes that require only yolks (like painted sugar cookies)!

Julie's Candied Pecans
1 egg white
1 T water
1 pound pecan halves
1 C sugar (can use white or brown depending on wht you like)
cinnamon (also optional - so up to you!)

Separate your egg and add water to the white.  Mix with a fork until very frothy!  Pour in pecans and coat thoroughly with egg white.  Toss wet pecans in cinnamon sugar mixture.  Spread into single layer on greased cookie pan and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring occassionally.
