      This recipe is a wee bit different from MissDaisy’s, hence the title;-D
      Candied Pecans II
      2 1/2 cups pecan halves
      2 tsp vegetable oil
      1 cup granulated sugar
      1 tsp cinnamon
      3/4 tsp salt
      1/4 cup water
      1 tspvanilla extract
      Put pecans and oil in a flat baking pan. Stir until pecans are coated. Roast in 300° oven 20 to 25 minutes, stirring frequently.

      Cool. Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt, and water in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.

      Boil to 236° of a candy thermometer, or to soft ball stage.* Remove from heat. Blend in vanilla. Add pecans and stir until mixture is creamy.

      Turn out onto waxed paper and use a fork to separate pecans.
      *To Test for Soft Ball Stage
      A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
