From Party Nuts! by Sally Sampson. These sound easy and good.

Agree with the first reviewer. They will not last long. I intend to bring these to class tomorrow morning, but there may only be a few left. Out of necessity, I made a few substitutions/changes. Next time I will follow the recipe exactly and fear that it may be even better. FYI, recipe still works great with walnuts, maple syrup substituted for vanilla, and without allspice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To make the spice mix, place the spices in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  3. To make the glaze, place the glaze ingredients in a medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Add the pecans to the saucepan and cook until they are well coated and the pan is almost dry, about 1 minute. Spoon the spice mix over the nuts, 1 tablespoon at a time, until they are well coated.
  5. Transfer the pecans to the prepared sheet, separate with your hands or a fork, and let sit until completely dried, at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
