    25 min

    Simple yet so delicious. Great to give wrapped in decorative bags around Christmas time. Try using a nut other than pecan if you wish!

    I made these with cashews instead of pecans and they were lovely. Will definately make again.  -  24 Dec 2009


    After reading all the prior reviews I made a few adjustments. This is a fantastic recipe, I just adjusted it to fit our taste. I upped the oven temperature to 300. I doubeled the coating. I baked them for the maxium time noted. I then took them out and stirred them up. I used cinn/sugae and sprinkeled it generousally all ove the nuts and stirred again. I then put them back in the oven until the were no longer shiny. They came out just like the nuts in the mall. Crunchy, slightly sweet and impossible to keep you hands off of!  -  14 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was impressed at how easy these were to make. I wish I had read all the reviews first, so I would have added some cinnamon, but they were still good. The only difference is that I used parchment paper instead of wax paper and I did not spray it. They did not stick at all. Thanks for a very easy and tasty treat.  -  07 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
