The spices in this recipe showcase pecans in a whole different light. This is a great snack for any party, but the heat suits the cool and crisp evenings during the Halloween season well. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"good texture, nice flavor, a little too salty for my taste, but everyone else liked it a lot. i think the butter really crisps them up."

"Hey Gang,

The recipe calls for "Pecan Halves" . . .
Anybody heard of Pecan Pieces?
Works the same, half as "Pretty" and 1/3 the Price!

"This sounds great can't wait to try it. lLittle advise for Ohio46 try looking in the bulk area of the store you shop most of the time I find my nuts and spices so much cheaper when they are not prepackaged and it saves greatly"

Not at all!  You could totally do this with other nuts, even peanuts would work fine."

"I haven't made this recipe yet, but I saw the comment from Ohio46. You are so right about the high prices for pecans. But I might have a solution for you.....Do you have a Costco store in your area? We buy all our nuts at Costco because they are priced so reasonable and they rarely raise the prices. You can get a 2lb. Bag (8 cups) for about 15.99. That works out to about 10.00 to make the recipe with 3 cups left over. A little more affordable :-)

Hope this helps you:-))))"

"This looks great but I priced pecans at my local store at $10.99 per pound so that would be approximately two cups while this recipe calls for five cups which comes to about $27.50. Am I the only poor housewife out here?"
