This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't tried it yet, but it's so quick and easy, has readily available ingredients, and looks so good, I might just make it before the day is out! The recipe comes from the Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - a collection of traditional recipes from contemporary kosher kitchen. It was listed in the Passover section.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter a large cookie sheet (one that has sides).
  2. Using a 2 quart glass baking dish, pour orange juice into sugar, and mix well. Stir in pecans. Cover with plastic wrap, but leave a corner open to vent.
  3. Microwave on medium for 6 minutes. Stir and continue to cook on medium for about 4 - 6 more minutes until the syrup crystallizes (check after 4 minutes, and then each minute thereafter).
  4. As soon as it's crystallized, spread glazed nuts on the buttered cookie sheet evenly, separating the nuts. Let it cool completely.

these are quite good, and i don't even like orange flavorings

This was very good, though a bit sticky. I will definitely add more nuts/make less sauce next time I make it (there will be a next time!) When sharing it with a friend, she remarked that they tasted like something that you would have in a tart.

Very good tasting. Used mixed nuts for this recipe for gifts at Christmas. Added extra nuts as noted by other posters. Will use again. Thanks, PanNan, for posting.
