These pecans aren't too hot, but you can leave out the red pepper if you like them milder, or increase it to taste. These make a great snack or appetizer for the holidays, or anytime.

A great recipe! I omitted the salt since the nuts were already salted. I also decreased the oven temp. to 250 degrees since I was concerned about burning and was also making a batch of Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds in another pan so it was very handy to make them both at the same time. Makes a great gift idea- just be sure to make extra for yourself!!! Read More

I have to say I was disappointed with this recipe. The seasonings smelled very good. Everything seemed fine when I stirred after 20 minutes so I set the timer for 8 more minutes to be on the cautious side but the damage was already done after 28 minutes in the oven. The spices were burnt! The nuts were a little too. Check the pecans more frequently than I did so you don't make the same mistake. Read More

Very good! I use these on top of green salads. Mine were ready in only 20 minutes though possibly because I used a very dark baking sheet. Read More

This is exactly what I was looking for. After reading the reviews I was careful not to overcook them. I used a Pampered Chef stone and they turned out perfect. I took them out after about 27 minutes. Be sure to check on them every 8 minutes or so. Read More

Yum! Have made these several times and were wonderful each time. I like them a little spicy so make them just as the recipe says. Read More

Very good - even better with 1 tsp soy sauce in place of salt and cayenne instead of red pepper. Read More

Fantastic! Followed the recipe exactly and it was very good. The next time I made it (about 15 minutes after the first batch was gone... LOL) I added a teaspoon of Louisiana Hot Sauce... WOW..... really good and highly recommended if you would like to "kick" the recipe up a notch. Thank you for sharing a great snack recipe. Read More
