Yummy Candied Pecans from Sarah

These are the best and easiest i've ever tried to make!!

Spread chopped pecans on parchment on cookie sheet.

Pour a couple handfulls of brown sugar, or mix it up with a bit of maple sugar and brown sugar, over the nuts.

Add spices...which for us is lots and lots of cinnamon, but you could add anything.

Drizzle any liquid over top: we use port, Sarah uses coffee syrups sometimes, i could see a citrus juice with some corriander.

Place in 350 degree oven until it starts to smell up your kitchen (5-8 minutes), then remove to cool.

Break up and place in airtight jar--good for 2-3 days.

NOTE: along with the cinnamon, i like adding a little Sale alle Erbe (Salt and Rosemary)--gives it a little ooh la la!
