    If this does not work for you, try again!!! FOOLPROOF as written!!! So awesome and easy!!!
    Wonderful! So glad Paula had this praline pecan recipe on line. Many more various versions but this was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!!!
    This recipe is by far one of the easiest and most delicious desert recipes I've come across. I baked about 6 lbs of these for Mardi Gras this year and my family devoured them. Of all the deserts I made for that weekend, these pecans got the most praise. I will definitely continue making and sharing them with everyone.
    This was such an easy and very yummy recipe. I did it on parchment instead of using a cooking spray as a couple reviews said they did and I dont recommend it, puts the cooking time way off, I ended up taking it out of baking dish 1/2 way through , they started to cook up better, I did stir mine about 3 times. These are so simple and Yummy, going to make more for Christmas gifts, and more for me too ;
    I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon too. They were perfect. Took a little longer to roast/dry out but that's probably because my pan was too small.
    Very yummy! Love Paula Deen
    Absolutely amazing! It is one of the easiest and yummiest snacks I have ever made!
    Easy & Tasty! Great when you want pecan pie without the crust.
    I made these this morning and took everyone's advice... I added a little cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla into the mixture before baking... baked on a parchment paper lined pan, sprayed with cooking spray... stirred them halfway through baking time... only baked for approx 18 mins... and sprinkled them with white sugar after they came out of the oven. They are perfect!!! Yummm!
    Watch them carefully, but they're absolutely divine! I make these year after year, give them away as gifts, and bring them to holiday parties, and they never fail to disappear. There are always comments about how decadently delicious they are, so one word of advice: make LOTS of them! Enjoy!!!
    These were delicious, and very easy! I stirred them more than once and only ended up baking them for about 22 minutes. I think they'd be fun to add more spices to change the flavor, or a little bit of maple flavoring just to add some new interest. yum.
    I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! I have made these candied Pecans for Christmas gifts, and everyone just loves them. The recipe is easy enough to follow, and you don't need a candy thermometer, or know what "stage" to get the sugar up to, etc. Just as long as you keep an eye on them while they are in the oven, you are good to go. I also have added cinnamon and vanilla.
    Great Recipe. I too added a little vanilla in the mix and also sprinkled a little sugar and cinnamon when they first came out of the oven.
    I used a baking sheet with parchment paper - worked perfect - and just threw away the paper when they were done!!
    oops wrong recipe
    These are awesome!!! I'm all about simple with a lot of flavor and dimension. I set some out for the Thanksgiving and everyone raved over them. So for Christmas I made a gift bag for everyone to take home.
    This has become one of our favorites to make during the Christmas season. One adjustment I made: we take it out before 20 minutes. Everyone's oven is different!
    Mix sugar and cream in bowl before adding pecans.(and any other flavors/seasonings) Add about 1/2c more pecans. Bake no more than 17-18 min for large pecans, less for smaller ones. Halfway thru, make sure to stir, try to spread in one layer. Sometimes I sprinkle a little white sugar on them when they come out...then toss again. Pour out onto another pan to cool...otherwise they keep cooking on hot pan. Easy treat for holidays.
    I make them all the time I add vanilla to the mix and they taste just like the one's at the park's 
    you can't go wrong with making them for gift's at the Holiday's.
    Very tasty. Use raw pecans for best tasting results. After the first 10 minutes stir the pecans - then - be on the watch so they didn't burn. After another 5-6 minutes they were perfect. So total cooking time was 15 -16 minutes. At 20 minutes they burned.
    These were fabulous! I made them in my dorm's kitchen and everybody that tried them loved them! Even my roommate who doesn't like nuts normally.
    This is the kind of recipe where you put it in the oven...and DON'T walk away. Keep your attention on what is in the oven, or you will have blackened pecans - definitely not good eats! I would also check them early, and often, because, as Paula says, they can go from perfect to burnt in a matter of seconds. This is true of all recipes that call for toasting or roasting nuts.
    I think this is the recipe I've been looking for, but I have a cookie sheet of black nuggets. I followed recipe to a tee, anyone have any suggestions?

    OK I retried this recipe, stirring every 2 minutes. FABULOUS! I had a 12 year old boy ask me to give his mom the recipe. It is the recipe I have been looking for.

    this recipe was what i have been looking for thank you paula !!!! i put some jack daniels in mine
    So delicious and sooooo easy. I love pecan pralines and these were perfect. No one could stop eating them once they started.
    My family loves everything that Paula Deen does...this was no exception! Thanks again Paula!
    Thank you Paula best I have made yet.
    I have been making this recipe for Christmas gift for our family & friends for several years, everybody just loves it, it is just so wonderful & easy to make.
    What a waste of pecans. It was so sweet, I had to throw it out!
    These were so easy to make for gifts and holiday munching. They came out of the oven a little wet but I kept stirring them on the pan to cool them off and they glazed right up and dried and were crunchy and coated perfectly! I added pumpkin pie spice to add some holiday zip.
