    I made these for my husband's office and my daughter's teachers for Christmas. They were a wonderful success. The only thing I changed was the maple syrup. I exchanged it for Steen's Cane is very popular here in Louisiana. You just can't stop eating them, thanks for the recipe.

    I made a lower-carb version by using 1 stick butter, approx. 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon, approx. 10 tsp of Splenda, and two shakes of chili pepper. DELISH and great for diabetics in your life.

    These pecans were a HUGE sucess! I made 5 pounds and the are all gone! Everyone raved over the pecans and wanted to know where I had bought them. I was very pleased to let them know they were homemade.

    FOUND!!!! Right under the recipe's title and above the video, click on the PRINT radar button. Before hitting your browser's print icon, find "Download the Spiced Pecans Tag" to the right of the picture, click it and print it.

    Thank you to whoever finally posted the template to go with this recipe. Merry Christmas!

  • dharmagal 15 Dec, 2008

    I emailed the Tech Support Group on Martha's Website regarding the Tag to be used for the Maple Spice Pecans. It appears that the tag template is now part of the recipe information. Yeah!!!

  • gnerren 15 Dec, 2008

    What do you mean rscholte? Did you find the tags and/or template? Please share!

  • rscholte 15 Dec, 2008

    The printable tags are right on this recipe!

  • danamcintyre 14 Dec, 2008

    I found the jars at 2 grocery stores. (Stater's and Albertson's) Inexpensive too. I was not able to find her stickers at Michael's though I did find just regular cute Christmas ones.

  • zuliblu 14 Dec, 2008

    I ended up designing my own label. The pecans are yummy!!!! They were a big hit at the Christmas party I attended Friday night.

  • parentsoftwo 14 Dec, 2008

    I reviewed Friday's show and the stickers are at Michaels; however, the gift tag is supposed to be on the website with the pre-printed receipe. I can't find it either. I made the Pecans and they are good.

  • brownje1 14 Dec, 2008

    I would review the video from Thursday's show. I believe the gift tag and the stickers are available from the craft line at Michaels. They made some really cute gift tags on Wednesday's show.

  • LARUERUSS 14 Dec, 2008

  • shellla 14 Dec, 2008

    hmmm..won't let me paste the whole link.
    It is the blank label for the salt scubs.

  • shellla 14 Dec, 2008

    this is the closest thing I have found on here...
    I sure would love the real template that goes with it soon though!

  • teelee37 14 Dec, 2008

    Can someone please put the template for the maple glazed pecans on the website. This is ridiculous. Everybody and their brother has asked for it. Does anyone monitor this website? We really need that template.

  • dharmagal 13 Dec, 2008

    In case anyone is interested in the Pastry Rolling Pin Rings - I found some on

  • dharmagal 13 Dec, 2008

    Although the "Techies" did not include the label template for this recipe, I emailed MS's Customer Service asking them to post the item. With any luck they may take care of the error next week. I'm am sure the Techs do not work on the weekends. Let's hope for the best.

  • TennesseeTeacher 13 Dec, 2008

    The bell jars can be purchased at Kroger. I saw them this morning for $4.59 for 4.

  • thabisa101 13 Dec, 2008

    The Ball jars can be found in hardware stores, in the canning section or they can be bought online. Martha's stickers are sold at most Michael's stores or can be bought online at eBay.

  • danamcintyre 13 Dec, 2008

    I went to Michael's and can't find the stickers. I also am looking for the rolling pin rings, any ideas?

  • walkermade 12 Dec, 2008

    Does anyone know where I can find this specific Ball jar? I can't seem to find it anywhere!

  • thabisa101 12 Dec, 2008

    I assumed that they simply forgot to include the template.

  • zuliblu 12 Dec, 2008

    I need the template for the top of the jar for TONIGHT, HELP ME!!! I have spent about a half an hour searching for it, Martha said it was here somewhere???

  • teresafahey 12 Dec, 2008

    I've been all over the site, and can't find the holly stickers or the template for the gift tag on the top of the ball jar. I'm finding the website a little difficult to navigate.

  • thabisa101 12 Dec, 2008

    Martha's stickers can be bought at Micheal's
