Pecan Brittle

One year my daughter was helping me make up a batch of candied pecans and instead of using the pecan halves she poured in the bag of pecan pieces. I just spread it out in the pan and baked it on up, well many years later it is still the way I make it now. It's a perfect gift during the holidays for friends, coworkers and family, but it's also good to snack on year round.

How to Make Pecan Brittle

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl combine the egg white and the pecan pieces, coat well. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients and then add them to the pecans and toss well.
  2. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Spread the mixture out into an even layer on the pan. Bake them in a 300 degree oven for 30-40 minutes (will depend on your oven). They will be very fragrant and lightly toasted in color. Remove from the oven and allow the mixture to cool in the pan.
  3. Use a knife and chop into bite size pieces or break by hand, keep in mind these are not as hard a regular peanut brittle. Store in an airtight container.
