Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place pecans in a large bowl and mix in maple syrup until well coated. Add spices and continue mixing until they are evenly distributed.

Cover a metal cookie sheet with multiple layers of foil to completely protect baking sheet. Evenly distribute pecans in a single layer on top of the baking sheet. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, stirring nuts every 5 minutes, until toasted and most of liquid has been absorbed.

Cool just long enough to handle and spoon pecans into a large clean bowl. It is very important to remove pecans from the foil covered baking pan as soon as possible to avoid the nuts from bonding to each other or to the foil.

After complete cooling, store in an airtight container.
