Cinnamon Pecans

In Urbana, we used to visit the Farmer’s Market fairly regularly and look for a stand of Amish farmers who sold various baked goods and candies. The one treat that they made that was almost always sold out by the time we got there was their candied pecans. It was a great day when we could find them. This is about as close as I can find… the Amish pecans are a little sweeter, but this recipe is very close.
