Sugar Spiced Pecans

Sugar & cinnamon turn plain pecans into a great party snack!

  • 1 pound Georgia pecan halves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Preparation -
Preheat the oven to 300º. Lightly butter a heat proof serving platter or tray. Place the pecans on a butter-sprayed baking pan and place in the oven to toast for 10 minutes (shake frequently about every 5 minutes). Remove the pan from the oven and set aside. Place the sugar, salt, cinnamon and water in a 2-quart saucepan. Place the pan over medium-high heat, and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture forms a syrup that spins a small thread when you pull the spoon from the syrup, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Fold in the toasted pecans and vanilla. Stir quickly to combine the nuts and syrup. Quickly pour the mixture onto the prepared platter. With a spoon quickly, but carefully, separate the nuts. Let the nuts cool until the syrup has set. Store in a tightly closed tin or in a covered plastic container.
