2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 cup pecan nuts
1 quart premium quality vanilla ice cream
Maple syrup

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix the sugar with the pecans on a baking tray and sprinkle with a little water to make a paste.
Bake in the oven for a couple minutes or until the pecans are toasted and caramelized. Scoop the ice cream into 4 dishes and sprinkle the whole pecans over the top.  Then drizzle with a good amount of maple syrup.  You can top with whipped cream but this is sweet enough as is!
