Pumpkin Spiced Toasted Pecans

Pumpkin Spiced Toasted Pecans - 42_Fotor

What fills your kitchen with a wonderful aroma of fall spices?  I’ll tell ya…pecans toasted in an oven with just the perfect touch of spices and brown sugar.  I was playing around in the kitchen and decided to make some of these.  I figured they would be great to just snack on, or in a batch of homemade pumpkin ice cream or something.  Well this batch never made it to any ice cream, but they sure were good.

Here’s how I made this quick and easy snack…
