Family and friends rave over this simple little treat. It's a slow baked pecan covered in a brown sugar meringue. Great for those large southern pecans but it's also good with any size pecan.

How to Make Pecan Nuggets


  1. Preheat oven to 250º. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg white on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually add brown sugar, then vanilla, continuing to beat until smooth.
  2. With a large spoon, gently stir in pecan pieces until well coated. Place individual pecans on foil covered cookie sheet. Pecans should not touch.
  3. Bake at 250º for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and let pecans stand in oven 30 additional minutes. Cool a few minutes before removing from foil.
