Frosted Pecans

Thea Pappalardo


A friend gave me this recipe after I went crazy over them. I make them every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone just loves them Last year my 13 year old grandson requested the recipe so that he could make them himself. (They look real nice sprinkled over a cookie platter.)
