I have a few people on my gift list that like to give a food gift each year. This year I adjusted the recipe here. The original recipe called for almonds. I have pecan trees in my yard which means I have an abundance of free pecans. I substituted pecans for the almonds. I used 4 cups instead of the 3 1/2 cups. I found that it reduced the amount of wasted sugar. I made a double batch of cinnamon roasted pecans.
A couple of years ago I picked up some cute holiday themed Chinese takeout boxes. I think I paid 9 cents each for them. They have been sitting in a plastic tote waiting to be used. I lined each one with a piece of waxed paper.
I filled each box with pecans, signed the gift tag, and they were ready to go.
