Four-Ingredient Vanilla Glazed Pecans

I just love pecans.  They are definitely my favorite nut.  Since I’ve been eating more salads, I’m always looking for fun new toppings for them.  Four-Ingredient Vanilla Glazed Pecans is an easy and tasty recipe that would be great on salads, a topping to ice cream or just to snack on.

“Pecans are not cheap, my hons.  In fact, in the South, the street value of shelled pecans just before holiday baking season is roughly that of crack cocaine.  Do not confuse the two.  It is impossible to make a decent crack cocaine tassie, I am told.” – Celia Rivenbark

Something I read that is an interesting fact about pecans, about 90% of the world’s pecans are from the United States.  Texas and Georgia lead the states on pecan production.

Pecans don’t only taste delicious, but they’re healthy too!  They help you maintain high energy, contributes to proper functioning of the brain and offers anti-inflammatory properties.

These yummy nuts would taste great on my Strawberry Feta Salad or Mandarin Orange Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette. 

Here’s the recipe for Four-Ingredient Vanilla Glazed Pecans:

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print


    • 1 egg white
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla
    • 2 cups pecan halves


    • Place egg white in a bowl and beat with fork until soft peaks will stand.  Slowly add brown sugar and vanilla.  Once sugar no longer has clumps, add pecans.
    • Place glazed pecans on a greased cookie sheet (I use stoneware, like this one here), separating them.  Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes.  Make sure you watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
    • Take out of the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.
    • Store in an airtight container.

You see, super easy!  You might want to double the batch because they won’t last long.  They would make a great gift for friends and family too.
