Slow Cooker Cinnamon Pecans


I have been making more recipes in the slow cooker this month than I usually do, so hopefully other people have been using their slow cookers a little extra as well. I made this sweet snack while studying for finals, although it is a slow cooker recipe, it does require a little work, but the results are amazing. This made a little more than I thought it would so I took the leftovers to work, my coworkers loved it.

Recipe from Tammilee Tips.

Ingredients:
-1 1/4 cup sugar
-1 1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 tbsp cinnamon
-1/8 tsp salt
-1 egg white
-2 tsp vanilla
-3 cups pecans
-1/4 cup water
Mix together sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl In a separate bowl whisk together the egg white and vanilla. Add the pecans and stir to coat.

Add the cinnamon sugar mixture to pecans and stir to make sure the pecans are evenly coated.

Spray crock pot with non-stick spray. Pour in pecan mixture

Cook on low for 3-4 hours, stir every 20 minutes, making sure everything is coated

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread pecans on the paper to cool.

These are crunchy and just the right amount of sweet. I enjoyed the sugar glaze that settled on the pecans and the cinnamon added a nice touch. Stirring them every twenty minutes wasn't awful, but it does take more work than most other slow cooker recipes. Overall these were a hit.
