    Normaone's Note:

    I love to add these pecans to salads of all kinds. Of course, they are pretty great just as they are! Feel free to adjust the seasoning to suit your individual taste. Also, walnuts and mixed nuts are really good fixed this way.

      I would give the recipe 4 1/2 stars, were that possible. I couldn't get the nuts to go on the cooky sheet in a single layer because the glazing was pretty thick after coating the nuts, so I stirred them a bit after they'd heated up in the oven. Still, in the end, they were clumped together and had to be separated after cooling. I would increase the spice level, adding extra cayenne or some ground black pepper. It did take the full 13 min. in the oven to achieve the glaze. I will give the recipe another try.

      I just finished making these to serve along with appetizers tonight. I made them exactly as written, and they are delicious. No changes are necessary. I will definitely be making these again!

      I used these to top a salad and they were a huge hit. They're just like the restaurant nuts in gourmet salads. I got comments too from people saying they could just eat a whole bowl of nuts on their own! Perfect as is, no changes to the recipe needed. Thanks!
