Easy Spiced Pecans

The combination of spices on these nuts seems to warm everyone on cold winter days. I made this recipe several times over the holidays. —Tammi Simpson, Greensburg, Kentucky

    This is a great recipe. I have used it many times. Often because of price- I have used a mix of almonds and pecans. Still works wonderful! Everyone seems to love them. Just be prepared that they go quick at parties!

    This recipe is a winner. Not only quick and easy but the nuts are irresistible. At first I was afraid they would be too spicy but when I ate some, they were perfect. This recipe is good any time of the year. I highly recommend it. I will make this recipe again and again.

    This was simple and delicious - pecans are a hit with the children.

    Followed the recipe, too much butter, not spicy enough. When baking I had them in at 325 and checked at 7 min and they were over done.
