Awesome Pecans
60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
6 ingredients

Totally addictive... these pecans are sweet, spicy, salty and crisp. A friend gave me some pecans for Christmas. I used the recipe she shared, a recipe from RecipeZaar, and another, from a third source. All three were good, but finally I came up with this recipe that satisfied my tastes, and my friends as well.
