5 Stars for taste, 4 stars for hassle, my pecans took the aluminum foil with them when I removed them, which is not normally required for spiced pecans. The taste was heavenly (or devilish?) with the chili pepper contrasting subtly with the maply syrup. Good recipe to use a Silpat on. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Sue! Made for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss nuts with other ingredients in a plastic bag until they are coated.
  2. Arrange nuts in a single layer on a nonstick foil lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375F or until the syrup begins to darken (be careful not to burn it!).
  4. Allow to cool in a single layer so they don't stick to each other.
