Grandma brought crack for Christmas

Ho Ho Ho! Bet I got your attention with that one, didn’t I?! Okay, it really wasn’t crack…but it might as well of been because it’s just as addicting.

The drug of choice (aside from chocolate) is……….

Sugared pecans.

There should be some sort of 12-step intervention program for this because once you start eating them, you simply don’t want to stop. You become territorial and will do anything to protect your stash. And with the price of pecans these days, it can certainly put a dent in your wallet to feed the habit.

If you want to cook up some sugared pecans in your own kitchen, here’s how you do it.

1 pound pecan halves
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 250° F. Beat egg white with water until fluffy. Add pecans to the egg white and mix until well coated. Stir together sugar, cinnamon and salt. Coat pecans with the sugar mix. Bake on a cookie sheet for one hour and serve.
Do this routinely, share with friends and family, and in no time at all you too can become a dealer in your neighborhood.
So Grandma is our supplier and we very much appreciate her generosity. Even though she never asks for anything in return, she did find a little crack of her own when she was here…every bit as addicting as the sugared kind.
I know because I’m an addict too.
If there is a 12-step intervention program for this, keep it to yourself. We don’t want to know.

  1. As sweet as the picture is of sugared pecans the one of G-Grandma with Peanuts is the best. It brought tears to my eyes – she was always so much fun when we were young. Give her a big hug from me when you see her next!
