WOW! These are so easy and soooo tasty! I made them for my sister's bridal shower, and I'm fighting the hands off--hoping there'll still be some left for the party!! The cayenne pepper is very subtle, and a little sneaky (you don't feel it until after a few nuts). I would recommend baking them on parchment paper, because I did have a little trouble getting them off the cookie sheet after cooling, but maybe I didn't grease the pan well enough. Thanks for a super recipe Lennie! I am planning to make lots of these for gifts this year.

Absolutely delicious, made these today to include on our nibbles table for Christmas. And the smell while in the oven was divine.

These are wonderful and the smell in the kitchen was awesome. Couldn't wait for them to cool down. I will definitely be making more of these.

Just a note to everyone: if you spray your baking sheet well with nonstick spray like Pam, you won't have any "sticky" problems!

This made a great addition to the Christmas cookie trays this year. It was sooo easy and quick to make. I used all pecans. The nuts were so flavorful. No one noticed the "kick" to the nuts until they were on the next mouthful. ;) Everyone loved them! For the people that don't like spicy or hot foods I omitted the cayenne and the results were just as good. I ended up making 4 batches. Word of warning... I forgot to butter the pan once and had a heck of a time trying to get the nuts off of the aluminum foil. Thank you for sharing!!this recipe!

So wonderful. I have made 2 batches so far this week with requests to make more for New Years. Wonderful sweet-spice flavor and a delayed little "gottcha" with the cayenne. Thanks Lennie, from the Daniel family.

Made these last night for Christmas gifts and they are totally awesome. I cooked them a little longer than suggested and used the new Reynolds non stick aluminum foil and it worked pretty well. Nice crunch and flavor....will definitely make many times!!
