DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy 6-inch skillet evenly spread out the sugar.
  • Heat over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking skillet occasionally to heat sugar evenly.
  • Carefully add pecan and 1 tbl butter or margarine.
  • Reduce heat to low; cook until sugar melts and turns golden brown, stirring constantly.
  • Remove skillet from the heat; spread candied nuts on a buttered baking sheet or piece of foil.
  • Cool. Break into small clusters.
  • Place clusters in a plastic bag and, using a rolling pin, crush the candied nuts.
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together remaining butter, vanilla extract and candied nuts.
  • If not serving immediately, cover and chill.
  • Let the butter stand at room temperature for about 1 hour before serving.
