My grandma makes these every year for the holidays. It's always handy to make extra for later snacking! They are relatively quick and easy to make and taste wonderful. I love the smell of these when they're in the oven.

Many of the pecans burned on the bottom in the last 5 to 7 minutes. Next time I ll try lowering the temp from 325 to 300 for the last 10 minutes. Read More

My grandmother made these for years just at Christmas though pecans are pricey. Since she has passed on me and my sisters now make them I give portions out in special containers that they can keep for Christmas gifts! People beg for them every year lol they are a HUGE hit!!! One thing try only baking them at 270 for about an hour stir every 15 mins so the nuts will not stick or burn this works much better in my opinion. Read More

I made these last night to include in a couple of Christmas gifts. The recipe was amazingly easy and the kitchen smelled wonderfully as they baked. The finished pecans tasted great and will now always be on my Christmas baking list. Yum! Read More
