10 minutes baking is tooooo long …some of mine came out blackened !

love this recipe
Don’t follow this recipe, unless you want your house to be full of smoke and want burnt pecan..
I wish I had read this comment before I tried the recipe. As you said, house full of smoke and burnt pecans. 🙁
Did you use the parchment paper? Turned out fine for me. Did you use the parchment paper as instructed? Maybe spilled the maple syrup in your oven.
Chunchon into small pieces sprinkle over your salad with crasins and lemon poppy dressing! Delicious!!!!
