Cinnamon Spiced Pecans

Here is a treat enjoyed by people of all ages. Spiced cinnamon pecans are nice to have on hand during the Christmas season to serve as an appetizer or add to your cookie plate, or to give as gifts packaged in decorated jars or containers! I love making foods that will delight my family or guests.

    Just another comment to add to the previous one. Last summer I seemed to have an abundance of nuts on-hand. I decided to experiment a little and the results are fantastic! I doubled the egg, sugar, etc and added it to the 1 pound of pecans. I added an equal amount of almonds and walnuts and baked it in two batches. Really, really good and the volume of nuts was reduced in my cupboard.

    I've made this for years and it is my go-to for holiday treats. Over time I've found that my family prefers 1/4 cup white & 1/4 cup brown sugar and add a scant tsp of vanilla.

    Yummy! I would make this again and again. Next time I will try some pumpkin pie spice. Made for bake sale on a warm day in Fl and was great because it was like I had just taken out of oven. This is a keeper!

    This is a fantastic recipe for anyone but in particular for me as a beginner. I had never made any type of pecans and found this recipe. The common ingredients, easy instructions, and delicious end taste make this a go to recipe. I have made this recipe three times just this Christmas season with great results each time.

    This is my first time trying a recipe like this. It was so easy, and the nuts are well-coated and crunchy. I personally could use a little more spice, perhaps nutmeg?

    I am so delighted to see this recipe again. I make mine with mixed nuts and had bought the nuts at Christmas only to discover I could not fine the recipe. Now I will use my nuts up. I love this for gifts at the holidays and get so many rave reviews.
