A friend and I got together and made several batches of these. We couldn't decide which we liked best (they are all so different) and found them all worth making. I guess it's a matter of personal preference.
We purchased our pecans at Costco (most cost-effective we found) and packaged them first in cellophane bags (to maintain freshness) before placing them inside mini-gable boxes (thanks again Amber!). We added some homemade labels and ribbon and voila...neighbor gifts galore.
Spiced Pecans a la Southern Living
Spiced Pecans a la Whole Foods
Spiced Pecans a la Bon Appetit
P.S. This is a great last minute gift! Costco usually carries a bajillion bags of pecans at this time of year :) In fact, our local Costco carried 1800 bags as of last week!
P.P.S. These would also be fun to make and deliver for a "New Year's" giftie as well. Sometimes we just can't pull everything off before Christmas...
