It never fails. Every year I forget to get a gift for someone on my list. I am really good about getting the family and friends done way early, but there's always that neighbor, co-worker, or relative that you hardly see that just slips your mind. I like to make extra cookies when I am doing my holiday baking so I can quickly box them up for gifting so nobody has to know they were forgotten during the holidays. This year, I was a bit cookied out, so I decided to make homemade Glazed Pecans from Golden Blossom Honey instead. This recipe can be made up to a week ahead of time, so it is perfect to have on hand for last minute gifts.
Pick up some little ceramic pots from the $1 store or Michael's, quickly wrap it up in some cellophane, then top with a ribbon or bow for an inexpensive, yet elegant presentation. These pecans are the perfect holiday treat, not only for gift giving, but they are great to keep out for your holiday guests to snack on too!
These are super simple to whip up, but the syrup dries very quick, so when the recipe says work quickly, you better work quickly. Also, before the candies dry completely, remove them from the wax paper and transfer them to a cookie sheet to fully dry, otherwise you'll end up having to pick off wax paper from the bottoms of the pecans. You can use a metal spatula to effectively remove the candy from the cookie sheet a lot faster than it would take to pick off stuck on wax paper. Allow candies to fully dry and harden before storing in an airtight container to prevent them from sticking together.
