I really liked this spiced pecan recipe. I was initially making a spiced pecan recipe that needed butter, but found that I had run out. I was relieved to find this recipe that was very similar, but needed no butter. This recipe was easily quadrupled to suit my needs. My only suggestion would be to cut back on the salt as it came out a little salty for my tastes (and I usually love salt). These make a nice gift, wrapped in individual goodie bags. Thanks!

I had a craving for some spiced pecans so I went searching for a good recipe, and I came across this one. When they came out of the oven my kitchen smelled like christmas in may! I think the taste could have been a little stronger (i may add some more cinnamon next time). However I did really enjoy these, oh and don't let these cool on the pan (it makes it really hard to come off, oops!)

I made these pecans to give as a gift for my parents. I tasted them first and they were great. But for my taste, if I do them for me, I'll omit the nutmeg cause I don't like nutmeg. My parents liked them a lot. They won't last long. Thanks Echo Echo. Made for Zaar star Game
