@Karen Mathis, generally, pecans last for one month in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.

Make sure to watch them in the oven. I had to take them out at 7 minutes, because they already looked burnt. I made them for my husband and he is ok with burnt snacks so they didn't go to waste. The seasoning was very good though! Definitely making these again.
