1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. water
1 lb. fancy pecan halves

Directions:
Warm honey and water, do not allow to boil. Mix well and cool to room temperature. In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup sugar and spices. In a large mixing bowl combine honey and nuts. Toss well until nuts are thoroughly coated and no honey syrup remains in the bottom of the bowl. Toss nuts quickly and thoroughly with sugar/spice mix. Spread nut mixture on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and separate nuts with a spoon (they will begin to clump together as sugar begins to melt.) Sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar. Continue baking 5 to 7 minutes more until nuts are browned and crystallized.
