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 Cinnamo...

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.

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 ...

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.

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

Very good. I spiced it up even more. Men seem to really like these.

I increased the red pepper and made it with whole almonds instead of pecans. Big hit!!

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.......
