Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter a large baking sheet.
  2. In a heavy 2-quart saucepan, combine the sugar, salt and cinnamon, mixing well. Stir in the milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching, to the soft ball stage (234F to 240F; with 236F recommended).
  3. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla and stir vigorously for about 1 minute. Add the pecans and stir until the syrup thickens and coats the pecans.
  4. Pour onto the buttered baking sheet. Separate the pecans using two. forks. Cool. Store in an airtight container.
