Cajun Pecan Cocoons

Julie Guidry


My husband is from South Louisiana and doesn't have any family here. To show my appreciation for all he does for me, I try to learn all his favorite things and this is one of them. His best friends mom made them for our wedding and she passed the recipe on to me.
