I tried this recipe and I was a little disappointed with it. I roasted the pecans for 10 minutes at 350 and they burned. The recipe calls to roast them for 12-15 minutes at 350. I think the roasting time should be 5 minutes at the most.
These are fantastic! We had snacked on the honey-roasted pecans we bought at the store, and were out. I googled and found this recipe. They were great in our salad... The only problem we ran into was that they STUCK to the waxed paper, and when we peeled them off they had paper on them. I might try putting a little butter in with the honey.
Love it! Try it with pure maple syrup. It's just as tasty and a lot less messy.
I too roasted my pecans for 10 minutes and they too burnt! Wish I had read the reviews before roasting and subsequently burning my $9.00/lb pecans. I agree with 5 minutes!
My husband raves about this recipe! He asks me to make them all the time. I roasted the pecans almost the full time the first time and it was a little too long. The second time I roasted them for the minimum and they were amazing. I also did not use wax paper I just rubbed butter across the pan to allow them to cool with out sticking! Worked great! I will continue to make this simple, awesome and tasty recipe!
The people that said their pecan burned I think it's because their oven is not working properly. I have done this recipe at least 3 times and never burned my pecans and I leave them in there from the beginning before preheat for 12 minutes and it comes out perfect! I use foil to put it in the oven and use the same foil for cooling, no wax paper.
Perfect. I was debating running to the store to buy some of these for a salad and remembered the bag of chopped pecans in the freezer. I followed the recipe exactly stirring (and checking) every few minutes. They came out perfect and the time was just right for my oven. I think stirring is the key and I followed a tip in a review and skipped the wax paper. I transferred the pecans to a plate to cool and used a wooden spoon to separate the big pieces where they stuck together. Thanks for saving a trip to the store and they are so much better.
This worked out very well for me but I did make some changes. Rather than using wax paper I used my Silpats, this allowed me to lift the nuts off without any paper sticking to them. I made two batches of honey and two of maple syrup. On my last batch I found that rather than unloading the pan right way once the water is driven off, I kept stirring the nuts with the pan off the heat the, sugar starts to set and the nuts stay seperated. The last batch also had the look of the honey roasted nuts you may purchase. As far as roasting the nuts I roasted them for 15 minutes but I rotated the pans and moved them from the top shelf to the bottom half way through.
Just made, them wonderful. I added some salt just for me, thanks MommyMakes!
