Little Sister's Spiced Pecans

This recipe is quick and easy and it results in a tasty treat that seems pretty sophisticated.  If only you had an unlimited supply of pecans at your disposal.  Oh wait, you do!  So grab a basket and start gathering.

4 tbsp. butter
2 cups pecan halves
2 tbsp. light brown sugar
2 tbsp. roughly chopped rosemary leaves
2 tsp. Worcestershire
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1.  Heat butter in a large cast iron pan over medium heat.  Add pecans and cook, swirling pan constantly until nuts are toasted, about 5 minutes.

2.  Add brown sugar, rosemary, Worcestershire, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and cinnamon and stir until pecans are evenly coated. Continue cooking pecans, stirring constantly until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

3.  Transfer pecans to baking sheet, spread into a single layer and let cool.

  1. Yummm! I will be making these! The pecans will be ending soon, I've (and by I've, I mean Mom has) been giving them away by the bag full! Luckily, they are fairly plentiful. Thanks for the recipe. Love the packaging too!
