Candied Pecans

Penny Binker


I am not such a big fan of a candied pecan but I know others are very much so. Though I love cinnamon I probably would make these without the cinnamon as I suspect that is the reason for my just tolerating the candies ones I have eaten. Spice is NICE but I think I am a purist with the pecans.

1Combine the melted Butter, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, & Pecans. In a heavy skillet or pot on MEDIUM-HIGH HEAT, cook until pecans are coated & sugar is golden brown, for about 4 minutes.
