Default 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?

Default Re: Cinnamon sugar pecans

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.

If you add cayenne, you get sweet, salty and spicy!

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.
