The original recipe for these gluten free, easy, delicious treats was from Company's Coming. The Boy, from the Get a Bigger Wagon stories, says, "They are so delicious they must be illegal."
Preheat the oven to 300°F
1 egg white
1 cup of brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of pecan halves, whole
Beat the egg white until soft peaks form. Add the brown sugar and beat until the mixture is stiff. Mix in the vanilla. Fold in the nuts. Drop by teaspoon onto greased baking pan or line a cookie sheet with a Silpat.
Bake the Pecan Bites in a 300°F oven for 20 minutes. Cool these little bites before tasting, because they create a sticky centre which holds the heat.
