Cinnamon sugar pecans
 
I've only ever used pecans, but I suppose any nut would do. We always seem to have an over-abundance of pecans and this is a perfect recipe to make a very tasty treat with them.

1 lb shelled pecans
2 C sugar
1 C water
1 T cinnamon
1 t vanilla extract

Simmer sugar and water in a Teflon-coated large fryer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add vanilla and cinnamon and mix well. Add pecans and stir constantly over medium heat. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches dryness. Pour over wax paper on a cookie rack. These things are highly addictive and make a good gift.

J - do you use a candy thermometer or let the mix go above 220 degrees before throwing in the nuts?

it's the cinnamon I can never get a taste for. I prefer a salty and maybe a slightly sweet ROASTED pecan or a butter
and salt SAUTEED pecan. I like cinnamon but in the end I like nuts too well just plain. I will file this one away though,
you never know.

No candy thermometer. Have made these numerous times. The key is you continue a medium heat until the mixture goes dry. Constantly stirring. It'll be all bubbly and within a minute or two it goes to complete dryness. There's nothing in the pan but sugar-coated pecans and the leftover sugar. At that time dump the pecans on the cooling sheet.
