  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and cayenne pepper. Stir and bring to a boil; let boil 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat; gently stir in nuts until evenly coated and the sugar mixture begins to thicken. Spread nuts over the prepared baking pan. Bake until browned, about 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let nuts cool. Place in a plastic bag, and gently tumble together to remove any excess glaze. Serve warm or store in an airtight container.

This recipe is not my favorite. Maybe I baked them too long but the pecans turned out a little too crispy and they tasted bland, even with the cayenne pepper.

What a great taste! I can't stop eating these pecans. I used Splenda instead of the sugar and (hopefully) reduced the calories.

One of the best pecan recipes I have tried. I don't like egg whites and this was just what I was looking for. These are a great post-workout snack and I use them on my salads. Yummy! One not...

Easy and fast. I added cinnamon to the sugar mixture and sprinkled sea salt over the pecans before putting them in the oven. I put them in for 15 minutes exactly and they came out slightly bur...

This was very good. I didn't use as much cayenne because the people I was making this sald for didn't like spicy food. Next time I would lower the temperature to 300 because some of the smalle...
