What a treat! I have never made sugared pecans before and this sounded so easy I thought I would try it. The only trouble I had was I either greased the pan to much or didn't bake them quite long enough (they were still a little sticky on the bottom). Nevertheless, DH and I ate most of them before I could put them on a salad. Definately will try this again. Thank you for a delicious treat. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag game.

Tasted good, but not the best looking...still tasted great on a salad with pears and feta. I doubled the recipe and put on very large baking sheet, but did not increase time. Nuts were not as crunchy as I hoped, but still good. Next time, I will increase cooking time slightly.

My DMIL didn't have any white sugar left, after Christmas, and I wanted pecans for a post-Christmas, non-turkey salad, so I made these. They tasted like tiny pralines, and they were great, on my apple and feta salad! We only had pecan pieces, but I stirred them, frequently, and they cooked perfectly! Thanks!
