Denise’s Cinnamon Pecans

Posted By Denise On September 12, 2013 @ 5:00 pm In Dessert,Recipes | 2 Comments

We have a pecan tree in the back yard that is producing like crazy this year, unfortunately the squirrels are enjoying more of them than we are but it still put me in the mood to make some pecan yummies even though I actually had a to buy a bag of nuts at the store.

There are only a few ingredients needed for this super simple recipe and the kids really enjoyed helping me measure them out and mix everything together. Of course they enjoyed sampling the cinnamon pecans even more so it was difficult to get them to wait until they were completely cooled.
