I was on a mission to create a brown sugar and butter flavored cinnamon candy pecan that was both quick like a bunny, as well as delicious. By Jove; I think I’ve got it! I had some on a bowl of ice cream, and it was excellent!
They would make a lovely hostess, teacher, mailperson, bus driver, beautician, neighbor, or anyone else that you would like to give a little gift to. My only suggestion would be that you pack them up quickly. Tasting just one could be the beginning of an empty batch of candied pecans.
3 ½ cups pecan halves (12 oz)
5 TBSP salted butter
5 TBSP brown sugar
1 TBSP cinnamon
Dash of salt
1 ½ tsp vanilla
In a large skillet over medium/low heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer and turn the heat to low. Add vanilla and nuts, stirring well to coat all sides of the nuts. In about five minutes, the liquid should be gone and the nuts well coated. Turn out onto a piece of wax paper. (No need to grease it). Easy? You bet!
