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.
