1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups of pecans

  • Heat pan on medium heat for one minute.
  • Simmer butter, Maple Syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pecans on medium heat for three minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of pecans and stir to coat, stir while cooking an additional 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and put on a cookie tray.
  • Bake for 6-10 minutes at 375 F.
  • Remove to a wire rack and allow them to cool and harden about ½ hour.
