AS LONG AS YOU SAVE ENOUGH FOR A PIE:

Sweet-spicy pecans (Lisa Zwirn, October 6, 2010, Boston Globe)

2 cups pecan halves
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
Salt (optional)

1. Set the oven at 350 degrees. Spread the pecans on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted and aromatic.

2. In a bowl, combine the sugar, chipotle powder, paprika, cinnamon, and oil. Add the warm pecans and toss well. Taste for seasoning and add salt or more chipotle powder, if you like. Serve at room temperature.
