Candied Pecans

​I find these candied pecans as irresistible as candy. Use these in salads or put them in pretty  little plastic bags and give them as gifts.

Servings: 8       Serving size: 1/4 cup       Preparation time: 15 minutes        Baking time: 12-15 minutes

Ingredients: 1/3 cup honey 1 Tablespoon water 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie ​      spice 1/4 teaspoon sea salt *2 cups unsalted pecans 1 Tablespoon sugar

*Walnuts can be substituted for the pecans.

Directions 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. Combine honey, water, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt in a medium bowl. (Set sugar aside.) Stir in pecans until coated with honey mixture. 3. Using a slotted spoon, place pecans in a single layer on the baking sheet. 4. Sprinkle with sugar. 5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through baking time. Watch closely that they don’t burn but bake until they are no longer sticky. 6. Cool slightly on baking sheet. Remove and cool completely. 7. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
