Ingredients:

  • 4 egg, whites only
  • 1/2 a cup of champagne or ginger ale
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of ground ginger
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 8 cups of pecan halves

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 F
  2. Spray two (15x10x1-inch) baking pans with nonstick coating spray.
  3. Separate eggs and in a large bowl whisk egg whites.
  4. Add 1/2 a cup of champagne or ginger ale, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, sugar and pecan halves.
  5. Now fold this together until the nuts are evenly coated.
  6. Spread the mixture out onto the baking pans.
  7. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the coating is absorbed and the pecans appear dry, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
