Braden Family Cookbook
From Laura Pitts who got it from friend Susan Strickland
ď1 pound pecan halves
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
3/4 - 1 stick of butter (use
salted butter, this isnít one of my recipes)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold
in the sugar a little at a time. Fold
the pecans into egg white and sugar mixture.
Put the butter in a broiler pan or other large oven-type pan and melt in
the preheated oven. Take pan with
melted butter out of the oven. Spread
the pecans into the melted butter. Bake
for 25 - 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes.
Separate nuts as they cool. Store
in a tight container and they wonít go bad before gobbling them all up! ď
