Recipe Advent Calendar - Day 22 - Candied Cinnamon Pecans

This recipe comes from GRIT Magazine, but it's very similar to others that I've used.  These are like the yummy candied almonds, cashews or pecans that you can get at the Renaissance Festival and the fair.  They're a favorite around here!

Candied Cinnamon Pecans Recipe

By Jean Teller

• 1 tablespoon butter
• 3 cups pecan halves
• 1/2 cup sugar, divided
• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1. In large, nonstick skillet, melt butter. Stir in pecans and all but 1 tablespoon sugar. Cook until sugar melts, about 5 to 10 minutes, tossing pecans often so they brown but don’t burn. Remove from heat.
2. In small bowl, mix together remaining sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Add to skillet and toss to coat pecans.
3. Spread mixture on wax paper and let cool for about 20 minutes, then break up clumps and store in resealable plastic bag.
