Family and friends rave over this simple little treat. It's a slow baked pecan covered in a brown sugar meringue. Great for those large southern pecans but it's also good with any size pecan.

  2. With a large spoon, gently stir in pecan pieces until well coated. Place individual pecans on foil covered cookie sheet. Pecans should not touch.
  3. Bake at 250º for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and let pecans stand in oven 30 additional minutes. Cool a few minutes before removing from foil.
