Glazed Nuts


  • ½ c. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ c. white sugar
  • 3 c. walnuts or pecans
  • 1 c. brown sugar


Bring sour cream and sugars to a rolling boil and continue boiling until mixture comes to the soft ball stage (where a bit of candy coating dribbled into a glass of cold water forms into a ball)...about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir. Add nuts, stir until completely coated, then spread mixture on waxed paper to cool. Separate nuts while candy is still hot.
