Compliments from my sister.


  • 1 large bag of halved pecans or 1 ½ cups of halved pecans
  • 1 cup of maple syrup
  • ¾ cups of brown sugar (light or dark)


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • On a large cookie sheet, lay out all pecans and bake for about 10 minutes or until the pecans become fragrant.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, bring maple syrup and 1/3 cup of water to a rapid boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add brown sugar and mix completely.
  • Add pecans to pot and coat each pecan with the sugar mixture.
  • Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated and stir frequently to prevent sticking.
  • Lightly oil wax paper with nonstick cooking spray or use nonstick aluminum foil.
  • Transfer pecans to wax paper or foil and lay pecans flat.
  • Allow pecans to completely settle, cool, and harden before eating.
  • Pecans pair well with vanilla ice cream!
