Comments on this Recipe

I didn't add the cinnamon but can't see that it would hurt.

We all thought these were YUMMY~!

Who does the recipe call for chopped nuts, but in the picture you show whole pecans? That's misleading.

Burned all the nuts with the given bake time! 15 minutes at 350F is fine!
