Hey there! I know, I know....I've been a slacker! But, between having unexpected (and delightful) company the other day, and preparing for vacation, I've been a little busy...so, hope you can forgive me. These pecans should make you my friend all over again! Perfect for gift-giving and I've already done the research for ya - now, you just have to make them...And don't make only 1/2 the recipe, like I did...(what a mistake); go ahead and throw your lot in and make the 2 cups...it's worth it! The recipe that I used (Spiced Pecans) recommended a higher temperature than I use when toasting nuts - after many years of experience, I decided to reduce the temperature to something that I was comfortable with...nothing like burning your expensive pecans. SO, if you make this recipe, I suggest baking these at 275º, for about 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. And, by all means, follow YOUR nose AND your instincts! Don't burn your pecans!
