Spiced Pecans

We serve these Spiced Pecans over our Waldorf Cobb Salad but they're just as good solo for snacking—or packaged up as a gift.

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes
Yields: Makes 1 1/2 cups


1 1/2 cups apple juice

1 1/2 cups pecan halves

3 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon apple pie spice

1/8 teaspoon table salt

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 350°. Pour apple juice over pecan halves in a small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes; drain. Stir together sugar, apple pie spice, table salt, and, if desired, ground red pepper in a medium bowl; add pecans, tossing to coat. Spread in a single layer in a lightly greased, aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch pan. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring once. Cool in pan on a wire rack 20 minutes; separate pecans with a fork.
