Sugar & Spice Pecans
cup butter
3cups pecan halves
cup sugar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon ground nutmeg

** waxed paper needed for this recipe
In 10-inch skillet melt butter; stir in pecans and cup sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar melts and pecans brown, 8-12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine all remaining ingredients. Stir in caramelized pecans. Spread on wax paper; cool completely. Break clusters into individual pecans. Store tightly in covered container. Makes 3 cups

Now personally I never have to worry about storing mine for long,
** I always spread waxed paper first before I start recipe two sheets cook sheet size

Duckie,

these are so goooood, and so easy to make I am sure they will make prefect gifts.

hardest part for me when I do them is picking out the pecans. But if you buy pecans boy they'd go fast.
And bet you were glad you spread that wax paper out first [thumb]

hi Linda [wayey]

first time I made these I just jumped in and I'm standing there with a hot pan and no where to dump them. [nutz]

So from now on if I see wax paper listed in a recipe I tear off a piece first before I start mixing and making [Big Grin]
