Cinnamon Crusted Pecans

Cinnamon Crusted Pecans It's a Keeper

These pecans are one of my favorite recipes to make during the holidays.  I can’t remember where I got the recipe from, initially.  I’ve been making them for years.  In fact, we included this recipe in our first cookbook, “Hitchcock Family Favorites“.

Is It a Keeper?

Here’s why I like this recipe:

  1. It is super simple to make
  2. They are incredibly delicious
  3. You can double or triple the recipe very easily
  4. They are incredibly delicious
  5. They make a great homemade gift for the holidays
  6. They are incredibly delicious
  7. You can use any nuts you have on hand…almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc.

Oh, did I mention that these are incredibly delicious?  Something magical happens when you combine the buttery-ness of the pecans with the sweetness of the sugar and warmth of the cinnamon.  It makes you feel all warm and cozy inside.

They are especially good when you eat them right out of the oven while they are still warm!  But, don’t eat them all.  Save some of the company!

Oh, and I’m curious…what’s the proper way to say pecan.  Is it PEH-CAHN or PEE-CAN?  I use both interchangeably.
