I think this may be a Paula Deen recipe, there is nothing noted on the recipe card, so I am not sure. There are several versions of sweet & spicy pecans on, but all of them are slightly different. Any time you add sugar & spices to pecans it is a winning combination.


  1. Melt butter, cayenne, cinnamon & sugar together.
  2. Pour over pecans, stir to mix completely.
  3. Sprinkle salt over nuts, toss to combine.
  4. Spread on parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 325 F for 15 minutes, stir half way thru baking.
  6. Cool & store in airtight container.
