Candied Cinnamon Pecans – Christmas Making and Baking

Have you ever walked around the mall and smelled the delicious smells of roasted pecans or almonds?  Or walked around Walt Disney World and saw the carts of candied nuts?  You can now make your own candied pecans and pretend to be in WDW.

Walt Disney World’s Cinnamon Candied Pecans

I made these many years ago as part of my Christmas making and baking.  However I stopped making them because of family circumstances.  Today I made them once again.  Yum!  My house now smells wonderful!
