Directions

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, sugar, and water. Stir mixture only until sugar is completely moist and mixture reaches 242 degrees F on a candy thermometer. At that point, without stirring, immediately remove from heat and add cinnamon. Stir until mixture settles or stops boiling. Stir pecans into mixture all at once. Stir until all pecans are coated completely. Pour out onto a cookie sheet and allow to cool. Break into pieces and serve.

I had no problems with this recipe, and had friends and family rave about it. I would put my own thoughts in, but I don't even like pecans! It turned out great looking, though! smile

I also had way too much liquid left - I think I will use more pecans on the next batch !!

This recipe yields too much liquid for the amount of pecans called for. I now have a sticky mess. Please adjust the amounts so that no one else endures this. Pecans are expensive!

PAULA: I made this and it was too much sugar for amount of pecans. What size of pecans did you use in recipe? The taste was wonderful, just like pralines. So I added enough pecans till I used the extra sugar. Doris Harper.
