Fall is here! Fall and cinnamon are just synonymous in my brain, so fill your home with the smell of these easy caramelized pecans.
FOR THE CARAMELIZED PECANS
- 1lb raw pecans
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp. Cinnamon
On medium heat, melt butter in a large skillet Add the sugar, cinnamon and stir.
Add 2 tablespoons of water to thin out sugar & butter. Mix should be syrup-like, not watery.
Add pecans and stir until well coated with sugar and butter, about six minutes.
Turn on broiler. On a parchment lined baking sheet, spread pecans.
Place baking sheet under broiler for about two minutes, any longer and you risk the sugar burning (you want caramelized pecans, not burnt pecans). Leave to cool at room temperature.
Store in cool dry area.
