These candied pecans are truly addictive

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon (adjust to your taste; I like 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon)
  • 2 cups nuts (pecans or walnuts are excellent, whole almonds are good too)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Optional: substitute 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste, instead of cinnamon and definitely gives a great pop of flavor
