Cinnamon 'n' Spice Pecans Recipe

Cinnamon 'n' Spice Pecans Recipe

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
