These pecans are glazed with a just-right sweetness from coconut nectar. You can use pure maple syrup, if you prefer. The pumpkin pie spice provides that distinctive pumpkin pie-like flair, of course. And the pinch of sea salt punches up taste and provides balance for the sweetness. A handful of these pecans makes a delightful snack. They’re also ideal for tossing into salads or sprinkling onto so many seasonal dishes. Hope you make a batch or two … soon!
