Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet with a rim. Stay close by, and toast the pecans 8 to 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Pecans will be done when they're lightly browned and you notice as a nutty scent fills the air. Cool completely.

Reduce the oven temperature to 325 ° F.

Picture of FYI....

The complex where I live had a Breast Awareness fundraiser bake sale in Sept. They asked residents if they could bake something for the event. Sadly, I was the only resident who volunteered. I bake these cookies, and the manager told me they were gone within 20 mins. One customer came bake and bought 12 more!

Good luck & happy Baking!!
