6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light rum
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Combine all ingredients except pecans in a small saucepan. Bring to a low boil for 4-6 min. Add the pecans. Glaze will thicken as it cools but remain thin enough to drizzle over pound cake or other cakes.

Makes 1 1/2 cups.
