Cinnamon 'n' Spice Pecans Recipe

Publisher Photo
Originally, these crunchy nuts were used to top a salad, but I adjusted the recipe so they could stand on their own as a snack. Cayenne pepper gives them a little kick, making the nuts a fun party starter or hostess gift. -Terry Maly Olathe, Kansas

Finally, a spiced nut recipe that is spicey and not sweet. Yum-O!

I tend to have more of a sweet tooth, but these were great. I would definately make them again.

Made this with fresh Georgia pecans--very hard to resist. Pepper is suble, a little kick as the final taste. A keeper!

MY REVIEW

These are really good. We love the sugared pecans, but I wanted a recipe with no sugar. I have made them twice now.
