It was very easy, but yes, you have to keep an eye on them. I had to reduce the temperature half way. They made the house smell so good. My son can't stop eating them. So yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Adjust the cooking time!!!! I burned 2lbs of pecans my first attempt at this recipe. 10 min, 7min, 3 min is better. I also backed down the temp a bit since my oven runs hot apparently. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They are really good, but you really have to keep an eye on them toward the end, or they will burn, especially if your oven runs a little hot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Anyone know how long these will keep? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I mixed this recipe with a recipe I received from a cajun friend. I added a cup of brown sugar and a tsp of ground cayenne pepper. MM-mm-mm. The cinnamon and cayenne pepper worked fabulous together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Holy Moly! These should be called Pecans from Heaven - because I want these on my death bed. I was thinking they would be too sugary, but since I was making for guests I thought these were probably safer than the spiced pecans. (I love spicy/salty savory over sweet usually.) As others suggested, I stirred after 10 minutes, then after 7 minutes, and after 7 minutes. And I sprinkled sea salt at the end, too. (These are going to kill me because I CANNOT stop eating them!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
