Beat egg whites with water until frothy. Cold eggs, right out of the refrigerator, are easier to separate than room temperature eggs.
Add pecans to the egg whites and mix well.
Fold the egg white coated pecans in with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Stir well to coat.
Spread pecans onto greased pan in a single layer and bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
