What You'll Need
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3 cups pecan halves
What to Do
- Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with the butter; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and sour cream over medium-high heat; mix well. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly; it's done when a drop of the mixture forms a ball when dropped in cold water.
- Add the pecans and stir until thoroughly coated. Pour onto the baking sheet, separating the mixture into individual glazed pecan halves, working quickly so the mixture doesn't harden.
- Allow to cool, then serve, or store the cooled pecans in an airtight container until ready to serve.
