Holiday Spiced Pecans
*Recipe from The Real Food Dietitians
3 cups Dickey Farms pecan halves
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. ground cloves
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. cardamom
1/8 tsp. fine salt
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Place pecans in a large bowl and mix in maple syrup until coated. Add the spices and mix well.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Spread the pecans evenly over the parchment paper.
Bake 15-20 minutes, stirring nuts every 5 minutes, until toasted and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Cool until able to handle. Break apart pecans as some may stick together.
After completely cooled, store in an airtight container.
