Cinnamon Pecans



  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups pecan halves


  1. Combine all ingredients except pecans, dissolve sugar over medium heat.
  2. Add pecans and continue to cook, stirring frequently. Cook until pecans are completely sugared with no syrup left in pot.

Be sure to break the nuts apart so that they are not served in clumps.
