My mom makes this recipe every Christmas with the new harvest of pecans and gives them as gifts.
I like making this recipe with English Walnuts. I buy the great big 2 pound package of whole and half size English Walnuts, which makes 8 cups. This uses up all of the glaze, and the coating is not as thick as my mom’s. But we like it.
Glazed English Walnuts remind me of the nuts we used to get at McDonald’s in their fruit tray. They’re easy to make and are wonderful served with fresh strawberries, apples, or grapes. And with Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Yum! Or simply by the handful as a snack!
