I made these for the first time at Christmas two years ago. It seemed like a lot of glaze for the amount of pecans. Last Christmas I made them again with more pecans, not as good. Next time I will follow the recipe again. They come out as a gooey mess. I spoon them onto large pieces of foil to cool. When I put them into a covered bowl they were still sticky, but by morning they were dried and crispy. These have already become a family Christmas tradition.
