My MIL makes these, she got the recipe from her MIL. I adore these pecans and they ARE addicting. Thanks for posting - now I don't have to ask her for the recipe - again.

My husband has been looking for this recipe for years! This makes a very light sweet dessert/snack. They are addictive, so watch out!

My friends and family LOVE these! They ask every year, "Are we getting those pecans again?" I don't make the effort to lay each pecan out separately, I just place the whole batch on a baking sheet and stir every 5 minutes until all the nuts appear "dry." Maybe they're not as pretty, but nobody seems to care!
