Candied pecans

4 cups pecan halves-1 lb
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 tap of vanilla

Put sugar and water in frying pan, add cinnamon. Cook and stir on high about 2 minutes (until mixture begins to thicken) add nuts and vanilla. When juice gets thick or disappears, turn burner to low heat, continue to cook and stir until mixture adheres to nuts (will have a crystallized look to it). Spread out on wax paper and allow them to cool. Pecans will be kind of white and crunchy when cool. (This requires constant stirring, great way to work the arms)

Thanks Katrina Redman!
