These Five-Spice Fried Pecans are the ideal party appetizer for grazing guests. The warm spices over these pecans have an autumn edge to them, and one test kitchen professional said these nuts have “just the right amount of spice to be addicting and not overpowering” and another said they’re “more deeply flavored and crisp than any toasted nut.” These delicious fried pecans will be gone before you blink, so you might want to double the recipe. A tip from the test kitchen: Cooling the nuts after frying is very important because the nuts will taste chewy when they are still warm. Our test kitchen also recommended that the nuts be slightly wet when tossed with the powdered sugar, so don't let them dry too long. You can store these Five-Spice Fried Pecans in an airtight container in a cool place for up to five days, so they’re a great make-ahead treat the week of a party.
