Delicious Holiday Gift ~ Sweet Hot Spiced Pecans

December 5, 2010

I love cooking for my friends, family and neighbors at holiday time. Here is one of my favorite gift foods to make and share. I got this recipe from Sunset Magazine several years ago. I love this recipe because it’s not too sweet and there’s a subtle spicy bite to it.  Wrapped up in pretty packaging, it makes the perfect gift for neighbors, coworkers or friends.

Gifts from the KitchenLine a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread nuts in a single layer on baking sheet.   Bake in a 300 degree oven, stirring once until nuts are crisp and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.  Let cool about 5 minutes, then use a spatula to loosen nuts from pan; cool completely.
