cinnamon pecans or almonds

What could be better than the smell of roasted almonds in the fall?

1/4 c. evaporated milk
1 c. sugar
3 c. pecans or almonds
2 T. water
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine all ingredients. Place over medium heat, stirring until all sugar is dissolved. Add nuts and continue to cook until nuts are completely sugared with no syrup left in the saucepan. Spread on wax paper and let cool.


  1. These look fabulous! How long can you store them?

  2. I wouldn't store them for longer than a month, but they never last longer than a few days at my house so use your best judgment. I hope you enjoy them in your home as much as we do in ours! Enjoy!
