Holiday time means it's time for ICED PECANS! I found this recipe in an old Better Homes and Gardens magazine from the 60's. That's as old as me! Their recipe was for ICED ALMONDS but since I'm from Texas, I use PECANS instead. Each pecan half is coated ("iced") with a thin coating or crust of candied sugar that reminds me of Louisiana pralines. Oh, so good!
These are a wonderful holiday treat but I make them throughout the year as well! I usually double the recipe and make many batches to give as gifts. They're done in less than 10 minutes once you've got all your ingredients together.
