Old-Fashioned Pecan Logs
Rich and indulgent, nutty and chewy, sweet and creamy—these are a few of the tasting notes that came out of the development of our Pecan Logs recipe. The vintage confections, which were popularized by Southern-favorite convenience store Stuckey’s—look more complicated than they are, in fact, aside from the prep, they’re easy to pull together thanks to melted caramel candies that stand in for homemade caramel. One thing to note is that you should allow the nougat to sit only until it’s just cool enough to handle. If you let it chill too long, you’ll have trouble rolling it into logs. Each batch makes up a whopping 32 servings, the ideal treat for hostess gifts and holiday goodies for coworkers, teachers, and neighbors. For an impressive display with just a hint of the nostalgia you know we love, serve slices of the log a dessert platter on your holiday sideboard this season.
