  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  3. Mix the pecan halves into the egg white.
  4. Stir the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl; add to the pecan and egg white mixture and stir.
  5. Coat the bottom of a jelly roll pan with the softened butter.
  6. Spread the pecan mixture in an even layer in the prepared pan.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, turning occasionally, 45 to 60 minutes.

I saw this recipe and read all the 5 star reviews and thought it would be good to try a new recipe. I make roasted pecans twice a year and I have never cooked them with butter in the pan before,...

Stop what you are going and make this recipe. These are so good! I have tried a couple other pecan recipes, and this is far superior.

Loved them! Simple to make and easily adaptable to individual to individual tastes.

I had extra pecans from the holidays so tried this for a card game. Everyone who tried it liked it a lot. I too doubled everything except the pecans as many suggested. Needless to say it is not ...
