This is one of the easiest nut recipe .   Adapted from

http://allrecipes.com/recirpe/sugar-coated-pecans/

But the original recipe uses way too much sugar and and is too complicated in the way that it requires unnecessary use of ziplock bag and pot.  Mine is simple, all in one pot and needs less cooking time.

First time I saw about sugar spinning was from Pastry Chef Becky.  She worked at Pan Pacific Hotel and she demonstrated an “apple tarte tatin” dessert with a mesmerizing sugar decoration.  It looks really fun and I attempted once with sugar, corn syrup and it failed.  I so want to make it, thus I actually called up to the radio station when she was on air and asked for recipe.  I happened to make puff pastry from scratch, have a granny smith apple at home, and have 1/4 box of vanilla ice cream.  Isn’t that the perfect ingredients to make the apple dessert that I can experiment the sugar spinning?

It turns out a success….. very very fun.  I think I will do it again.
