Ingredients:

1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
⅛ tsp cayenne
4 c. (12 oz.) pecans halves, unsalted
1 egg white, whisked

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300.

Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and cayenne to a large bowl or ziplock bag. Toss or whisk until evenly combined. Set aside. In a separate bowl, add pecans and egg whites, and gently toss until combined and the pecans are evenly coated. Add in the sugar mixture, and toss until combined.
Spread the mixture out in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, removing the nuts and giving them a stir every 20 minutes, until the pecans are fragrant and the sugar coating is cooked. (The sugar will harden more once the pecans are out of the oven.)
Remove from the oven, and let the baking sheet cool on a cooling rack. Transfer them to a sealed container and store until ready to use.
