I've been making these for years- only 4 stars because the butter content is too high. Use 1 stick per 5 cups of pecans...melt the butter in a shallow glass dish in the oven. Stir in a dash of garlic powder. Add nuts stir gently until coated. Remove to baking pan with a SLOTTED spoon to remove excess butter. Bake & shake every 10 minutes until done to your taste. Enjoy!

I thought these were great. I only had them in the oven about 25 minutes before they started looking like they were burning. My oven is off quite a bit though. Just peek at them every 10 minutes the first time you make them. My husband thought they were a little too rich to eat on their own but is taking some to work to put on his salad. I might experiment with some additional seasonings next time. Garlic salt or parmesan would be great. Definitely a keeper. Read More

I made these last Christmas for myself and friends. They were delicious and easy - I do suggest that you keep an eye on them in order to keep them from getting overdone. Read More

I have made this recipe many times and use two egg whites slightly beaten to moisten the pecans with. They are wonderful and less calories. Follow the recipe givn for oven temperature and cooking time. Read More

It took all the self control I could muster not to polish these off myself! The next time I make these I will cut down on the butter. It took me quite a few paper towels to blot off the excess. They only took 45 minutes in a 275 degree oven to toast up beautifully. Read More

These are so great! They were barely out of the oven and I had eaten a double handful. I did save enough to give as a hostess gift along with some praline coffee. I agree with other reviews that they may not need to be cooked for a whole hour..mine were plenty done in about 40 minutes. I look forward to making these every holiday season! Read More
