Spiced Pecans for Mother's Day

Here is a sweet treat for Mom for Mother's Day. The pecans are spiced up with cinnamon, vanilla and a dash of ground cloves. When you are making this recipe, the aroma of the cinnamon and cloves makes your whole house smell like the holidays. So, go ahead and make a batch of spiced pecans to celebrate Mom on this special occasion!


1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
2 cups pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, water, cinnamon,  and cloves.  Use a wooden spoon and stir until sugar dissolves and continue stirring for about 8 minutes. The sugar mixture will be boiling. Add pecans and vanilla and continue stirring until the liquid has absorbs about 8 more minutes.

Have ready a cooking sheet and pour the pecans on the cookie sheet, quickly and use your wooden spoon to separate the pecans because the glaze on the pecans will harden fast. Enjoy!
