  1. These look delicious! Thanks for sharing that CQ. I'll have to try these now that the children and I have picked up a lot of pecans this year. We found a pecan tree.

  2. Aha! An egg!! I've tried making my own glazed nuts many times but they always ended up in a big clump of sugar. I never thought to add an egg!

    Found you on the Barn Hop - thank you for sharing your dear MIL's recipe! Can't wait to try it.

    1. I'm with Jill, that's the secret ingredient that I never knew about! Fortunately, I have a backyard full of hens waiting to help me give this recipe a whirl. Thank you for linking up with the Clever Chicks this week; I hope you’ll join us again!

  3. Thank you for sharing this recipe. My kids are going to love making these.

  4. You put me to shame with all your industrious activities.

    I can smell those pecans. I may have the same recipe. I call it Bonnie's Pecans because she gave the recipe along with a wonderful bowl full of these for Christmas one year.
