I have two HUGE pecan trees in my backyard and more pecans than I knew what to do with until I found this recipe! I usually toast the pecans with garlic salt, tobasco, and butter. Not anymore! My DH fell in love with these....Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
Mirjam, not only have you made me a hit with all the teenagers running around here, but you've also taken care of a large portion of my holiday gift-giving! Spiced Vanilla Pecans for everyone! I plan to make this regularly, and particularly before a trip. Forget those little bags of airplane nuts. Oh, and what a nice hostess gift this will be. Or a welcome gift to a new neighbor. I could go on and on. :) But I won't. ;) Thank you so very much for sharing this.
I made a batch last year for Christmas of this. I put them in Mason Jars and used my Food Saver to vacuum seal it. Put cute fabric under the jar lid, and attached a copy of the recipe. Everyone loved them! They are great as a topping for ice cream or in a salad with Balsamic!
I made these to take to a friend's house for a get together. Everyone who likes pecans liked them. I will make them again one day, but i won't make the same mistake i did this time. I didn't spread them back out on the cookie sheet to cool b/c we had to leave, so they did clump up in the tupperware as they cooled. We broke them up, ate them and no one complained!
I've been making this recipe for friends and family for about 10 years. It is always very popular and a great holiday gift. Super yummy on a salad with gorgonzola.
My family loves these! We just made them again for Thanksgiving and they barely made it to Friday morning. They are awesome!
Ahh, the spiced pecan recipe I've been looking for! This was easy to make, and very good. I made both pecans and cashews (the cashews did take a little longer to bake). I did think that the spice level was a bit low, so I doubled it and it turned out perfectly that way. Thanks!
I love the original, but I've also substituted whole almonds and orange oil which have also been a big hit. If I'm out of allspice, I've substituted ground cloves, which still leaves these pretty tasty.
What a great hit this recipe was at my superbowl party. Thank you very much.
