Arizona Pecan Nuggets

Bake these cookies on a dry day. Humidity makes them very sticky.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In large bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, coconut and salt. Add honey, egg whites and vanilla extract; blend by hand or with a rubber spatula just until ingredients hold together.
  3. On a baking sheet lined with parchment baking paper or foil, drop batter by rounded tablespoons 1 inch apart. Bake about 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Do not over-bake.
  4. Cool completely on lined cookie sheet. If cookies stick, peel paper or foil from cookies.
  5. To store, layer cookies between fresh parchment paper in airtight container.

Yield: 4 dozen nuggets
