Pumpkin Pie Spiced Pecans

I usually make at least two batches of these nuts at a time and package in containers to give as gifts. —Tari Ambler, Shorewood, Illinois

    I use stevia instead of sugar/honey, and mix almonds with the pecans. So yummy, I have made it twice!

    These are mildly spiced/sweetened. My husband really likes them.

    Pecans can be very expensive. You could substitute walnuts or almonds.

    thank you Tari for a delicious recipe. My first batch was devoured at our monthly senior dance. I'm getting ready to make more for holiday gifts.
