Maple Cinnamon Country Fair Nuts | Rita Heikenfeld

Maple Cinnamon Country Fair Nuts ingredients
3 cups pecan halves

For the glaze:
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp maple flavoring
Couple gratings of nutmeg


To toast pecans: Place in single layer on baking sheet and roast in 350ºF degree oven until fragrant, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Prepare the glaze:  In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, water, vanilla, cinnamon, maple and nutmeg. Cook over Medium heat until sugar dissolves and then bring to a gentle boil. Add nuts all at once and cook until pecans are completely sugared and no syrup remains in pan.

To bake:  Pour onto sprayed baking sheet and let cool. They will become more opaque as they dry. Separate into small clusters.
