To the reviewer who states that these are too soft to his liking: you need to let the pecans sit for at least 10 minutes for them to crisp. I tried them right out of the air fryer, and yes they were soft. I came back 10 minutes later and they had all crisped up. My favorite way of making them now. Read More

These are delicious and so easy! I'm glad it's a small batch, because it will be hard to control myself. I used unsalted butter, so I added around 1/8 tsp salt. I also doubled the cinnamon. Read More

i added too much butter in basket. and also I added the foil then preheat and the dang foil got sucked up by heating element. SO i stopped air fryer then added butter and all ingrediants. It came out yummy but i know next time chill on the butter. Read More

I added maple and brown sugar oatmeal mix in(like popcorn powdered flavors) and doubled the recipe. It was fabulous! My son has been breaking the bank buying the small packages of praline pecans at the grocery store. These are not only better tasting but also better on my budget! Thank you so much for sharing!
