Slow Cooker Candied Pecans

Ingredients:
· 1 cup sugar
· ½ cup brown sugar
· 1 ½ tablespoons cinnamon
· 1 egg white
· 2 teaspoons vanilla
· 4 cups pecan halves
· ¼ cup water

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg white and vanilla until it becomes a little frothy.
3. Place pecans in a slow cooker sprayed with cooking spray. Pour egg white mixture over pecans and stir until nuts are evenly coated.
4. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over pecans and stir until nuts are all coated well. Cook covered on low for 3 hours, stirring every 20 minutes. Depending on the slow cooker, be careful not to burn. When 20 minutes are left, pour ¼ cup water into the slow cooker and stir. This will make the nuts crunchy.
5. When cooking time is up, spread nuts out on a cookie sheet to cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Store in an airtight container.

Great Christmas gift!
