I spent the afternoon cracking pecans with my bullet nut cracker. I love that thing! Later, I decided to use some of the nuts to make Spiced Nuts. It’s really easy!
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups pecan halves or pieces
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
Melt the butter in a skillet.
Add pecans, and saute for 2 minutes.
Add sugar and cinnamon, and toss well to cover all the nuts. Spread on a cookie sheet that has been covered with foil.
Bake for 20 minutes in a 400º oven. Let cool on pan, then store in an airtight container.
