Of all the aromas we can smell in Fall, fireplaces, football concession-stand foods, pumpkin pie spice, mulled apple cider, my Ma’s spiced pecans were always my favorite.  These Fall spiced walnuts encompass all that is fall and will even work well in the winter season too.  They are great for light snacking, bringing to a party, or giving as gifts to foodie friends, teachers, and party hostesses.  They are easy to make and sure to please!
