I made this recipe and from then on everyone asks for it! This is one of those recipes that comes from another site and I made a few adjustments. It is easy, quick and good for you.

I have made this recipe several times. The taste is great. I like it because it meets South Beach criteria. However, it always comes out looking like the photo - burned and most of the pecans fall off. Then I usually end up finishing the cooking in the oven. I finally solved this. Toasting the pecans allows you to process them to a finer texture as they don't "clump" as bad. I put them on a sprayed pan and then baked them at 375 F for about 10 minutes per inch. Turned out perfectly! Thanks for the recipe!
