I received this recipe from Michelle Fawcett. This is a great recipe to bag and give as gifts. I usually make it with almonds, but I tried a few pecans in the syrup today and they tasted just as good.
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. water
1/8 t. cream of tartar
1 t. cinnamon
Boil to a soft ball and add 1/2 t. vanilla and 1 1/2 c. almonds. Mix well, stirring until it goes sugary, and pour out into a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Break into individual almonds with two forks. At Christmas I five times the recipe and use the 3 pound bag of almonds from Costco.
