Cinnamon Sugar Pecans - Good Life of a Housewife

Are you looking for a sugar fix that is easy and delicious? These cinnamon sugar oven roasted pecans are a MUST. I have been experimenting with different recipes for years. The egg white wash with vanilla just happens to be my most favorite.

The egg wash and sugar creates a candy coated pecans that brings back the nostalgia of going to carnivals as a kid. Add vanilla to the mix and it’s sure to create some of your very own “smell” memories every year.

These are best eaten fresh and warm. Be sure to use a baking pan, or a pan with sides so the sugar doesn’t fall off the edges in your oven.
