Spiced Candied Pecans...put them on your list.

Are you like me?  About this time of year, do you start making a mental list of the goodies you want to make for neighbors, friends, teachers, etc. over the holidays?  Goodness knows I'd never be organized enough to make an ACTUAL list.

Well, put these on your "to make" list, mental or otherwise.

Spiced with cinnamon, allspice, and cloves...and just a *pinch* of red pepper for a little somethin' somethin', these spiced candied pecans are sweet, spicy and utterly addictive.

These guys are so additive, that I could not stop eating them.  I had to get them out of my house.  One of the bags, I gave to my friend, Lupita.  Lupita in her wisdom said, "oh, these would be so good on a salad."

The thought never occured to me as I was inhaling them straight off of the cookie sheet.  Yes, they are delicious on salads, too. ;)

You'll toast up some Texas pecans...ok, you can use pecans from other states, too.

You'll use a candy thermometer, but don't be scared.  You'll be fine.  This is the candy thermometer I use.
