The most common way of cooking pecans but still yummy..

I just made these and they're excellent! Just like the store-bought version. I want to put these in small gift bags for my wedding. Since I will need to make 150 bags how far in advance can I bake these? Can I make them several weeks in advance and freeze them? Any advise would be great!

The people I know laugh and call me Miss Puala Deen. I love to cook good rich southern food. Vegetables are cooked soft with a meat for flavor. Potatoes are cooked with salt, pepper, butter and cream-absolutely melt in your mouth.Fried chicken(small flavorful) pieces seasoned perfectly with the right amount of crunch. I get ideas everyday for new projects to try. Keep up the good work Paula.I have also lost 150lbs in two years. I still cook the same and eat a smaller portion.It can be done.

Hi Faye, Here is the recipe you're looking for:

By Jonathan Able on October 26, 2011


It figures that the only ingredients I had in my house today for this recipe were the cooking pan and the cooking spray. But.........I figured it all out. I used walnuts instead of the pecans, brown sugar Splenda for the brown sugar, and half and half in place of the cream (just lowered the amount of liquid to 3 tablespoons since half and half is thinner). It all worked out beautifully and this snack is delicious! I have to make a trip to the market tomorrow so I will be making more tomorrow especially since once my hubby gets home these nuts will disappear! Yummy!

Here is a recipe I used to make for my kids. We were so poor I had to create them. And I know you are good for sharing. Take an incredibly cheap chocolate cake mix. Prepare according to directions. While baking Oh I always use a large cast iron skillet, mix two cups of creamy peanut butter in a sauce pan over med heat with one stick of margarine. let melt add one cup of brown sugar and some chocolate chips. Melt and stir well. taste make sure sweet enough (according to taste). When cake comes out of oven pour hot mix over hot cake and let cool. This was one of my kids faves on the weekends. My friends love to come over in the winter and we make this and serve with ice cream or whipped topping. I know Paula will tweak to her taste. Also good to add fresh pecans or finely chopped peanuts.

I tried these over the weekend, and LOVE THEM!!! I recommend to to take out after 15-18 minutes, and watch them carefully the last few minutes to keep them baking too long. Perfect for when you want something sweet and not too heavy or full of calories. I'll definitely package these up in my gift baskets! Thanks Paula!

thank you Ms. Deen for getting me thru one of the most difficult times in my life and you wouldn't even begin to realize how you did it but anyway Thank You. I really enjoy your shows all of them and all your recepies I have managed to buy one of your books. I'm real limited on income as I take care of my elderly mother but I'm saving little by little to purchase the next one. I sincerely Wish you and your families a very blessed Holiday Season. God Bless and agin Thank You. Sincerely, Sylviana G. Corona Corpus Christi, Texas

Fantastic. I had my wine class eat pieces with a Michigan made St. Julian Solera Cream Sherry, and the pecans and the sherry were a great match. Try it !!
