I make pecans glazed in pure maple syrup instead. It doubles as a delicious Thanksgiving pecan dessert and a snacky treat.
It's very quick and easy to make. Only 4 ingredients. While waiting for your turkey to brine or whatever's keeping you busy & waiting tonight, these pecans can make your wait more worthwhile. Give it a try.
- 2 c. raw pecans
- 1 TB oil
- 1 TB cinnamon
- 1/3 c. maple syrup
2. Add cinnamon. Keep mixing it with the nuts for 1 minute.
3. Pour in the maple syrup. Toss it in with the nuts for about 4 to 5 minutes. When the pecans look sticky and the maple syrup looks crystallized on to the nuts, turn off stove.
4. Transfer pecans into a bowl. Cool for 5 minutes.
