on cinnamon sugar pecans...

These sugary confections are soooooo easy to make and you'll be eating them by the handfuls. You will just have to trust me on this one. I swear I've been saying I want to make a batch of these for like 2749283647 years and it felt like today was the perfect day. I really don't understand why it took me this long because honestly, these tiny bits of heaven are super addicting and because they're so simple to make they are equally dangerous!
How nice would this be for a little Holiday gift? Make a few batches, fill up mason jars, slap a bow on it and call it a sweet gift for the lovely host of Thanksgiving dinner. Believe me that person will be thanking you at the end of the day when they curl up on the couch with a hand full of cinnamon sugar pecans.

2 egg whites
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract 
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
4 cups pecans

1// Heat oven at 350 degrees
2// Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour melted butter over paper evenly.
3// In a large bowl mix together egg whites, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup. Whisk all ingredients well.
4// Add pecans and toss until fully coated.
5// Spread pecans across baking sheet. Bake them for about 30 minutes while stirring them every 10 minutes. Once done let them sit for 15 minutes until cool.
