    Something else. Very tasty. I toasted at 150 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Like others, I lowered the amount of butter. I also added brown sugar to the butter, and while toasting I threw on some maple syrup. delish!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I've been making these for years- only 4 stars, because the butter content is too high. Use 1 stick per 5 cups of pecans...melt the butter in a shallow glass dish in the oven. Stir in a dash of garlic powder. Add nuts, stir gently until coated. Remove to baking pan with a SLOTTED spoon, to remove excess butter. Bake & shake every 10 minutes until done to your taste. Enjoy!  -  29 Sep 2008
