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

Love, love, love them! My whole family can't wait till I make them. Even my mother-in-law requests that I make them for all holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted something to take to my mom's for Easter and this was prefect! I actually had cashews, so I used them instead and it was awesome! My oven is a little funny, and doesn't get hot enough - so I did the time suggested and they didn't get crisp. After they cooled and I knew they wouldn't get harder, I put them back in the oven for about 10 mins and they were perfect! My point - if you worry about burning them, go a little under then put them back in later, if need be. But, since there are so many good reviews, I would suggest going from the temp on an oven thermometer rather than your temp controls - 350 seems to work great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My Husband is a true pecan lover... I made these for him for a treat on Easter.. He loved them! My daughter thought they would also be great thrown into a salad. I think I will double the cinnamon the next time I make them. Deffinitely a keeper!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bad bad recipe. Pecans were burned. Waste of product and money. Pecans should be roasted at a lower temperature not baked. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Oh, so very good! I like very much that the pecans do not get soft. Beautiful on muffins or cupcakes. My favorite is on top of a cranberry waffle! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are easy to make and taste awesome with a perfect sweetness. I didn't change a thing except the time of baking. I varied the time at three steps. 1. left it for 10 min and stir 2. put it back to oven for 7 min and stir 3. put it back to oven for 4-5 min and they came out as perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Followed recipe exactly. Nothing wrong with my oven. They burnt! Are you sure its supposed to bake at 350 degrees and not 250 degrees.

Best ever! I sprinkled with sea salt right after I removed them from oven spectacular! And very easy recipe and you pretty much have everything on hand in your pantry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent sugared Pecans. If your oven runs hot they will burn so watch them carefully the first time and adjust time or temp to your appliance. I used a Breville oven that was perfect at 350 for 25 minutes. Also added chipotle hot sauce to some as a counterpoint to the sweet. They lasted about 15 minutes during a football game so make a double batch and ration them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used walnut halves. Delicious! I have a gas oven so it heats faster. Baked at lower heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love these, so addictive! I used Truvia Baking Blend in place of sugar (I'm diabetic and they were delicious. I might cut down on the oven temperature 25° next time. There were only a few that were burnt. I guess I should have read the reviews first. When using Truvia BB you cut the amount to half that of sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow!! Very good. Followed recipe exactly, turning 3 times. addictive. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these with 1/2 pecans and 1/2 peanuts to help cut costs. They are delicious. My first batch browned too much at 350 degrees.

This recipe was so simple and turned out fantastic! Really, really tasty. I made these on Sunday before the football game came on. Yum. These would make a great homemade holiday gift or thanksgiving snack. I salted my with kosher salt after they came out of the oven because I like the sweet n' salty combo best. I also imagined mixing these sugared pecans in with some pretzels, dark chocolate morsels and dried cherries for a yummy sweet snack. Thanks Trisha! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Know your oven and watch things as you bake them. I have made these countless times and will continue to do so. Delicious and they do not last long at all because everyone loves them so much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I let them cool completely, then put them in an apothecary jar with a tight lid. They stay on the counter and don't last very long because we eat them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Check the temperature of your oven using an oven thermometer, not the temp controls on the oven itself. item not reviewed by moderator and published
