DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: To roast pecans, bake them on a sheet pan at 275 for 20-25 minutes, until slightly browned and fragrant.
  • Combine all ingredients and bring to a softball stage (238-240 degrees), stirring constantly. Soft ball stage is also achieved when you place a spoonful of sugar mixture into a glass of water and it sticks to the side.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Beat with a wooden spoon until mixture thickens, becomes creamy and cloudy, and pecans stay suspended in mixture.
  • Spoon out on buttered aluminum foil or parchment paper.
