Spiced Orange Pecans

This is a wonderful and very easy recipe for the holidays! I found it in Taste of Home Magazine. If you decide to prepare a double batch, please make sure you spread in only a single layer on the baking sheet. It is important that these pecans dry as they bake to become crispy. I hope you enjoy this recipe. I think it is a real treat!

Loved it! Easy to make, and easier to eat the whole thing if your not careful.

Oh, man...these are so incredible! I tried the same preparation with pecans, walnuts, and almonds, and they were all amazing (my personal favorite was the almond version). The orange scent filling my apartment was a great fringe benefit to the recipe, too. Thanks for sharing!
