"I could not believe these tasted as great as they did. When you hear the words "sugar substitute," most people cringe. Believe it or not, these pecans were so tasty, without all the fat!"

"I have made this before but never used a sugar substitute so I will have to try that. They are so good to eat plain or put in salads. One year I gave as a little extra Christmas gift."

"I have a similar recipe, but use water instead of the egg white, and don't use any salt. I bake on a foil lined cookie sheet"
