The Technique

Spiced Pecans

Spiced pecans would make a welcome appearance around the holidays at our house growing up. When a batch was prepared, you knew that Christmas was fast approaching. Cinnamon-Sugar Buttered Pecans are a simple recipe offering versatile serving options. Sprinkle the nuts over cakes, pies, pancakes or waffles for an irresistible addition. A blend of mixed salad greens, sliced apple & champagne vinaigrette becomes something more lovely when a few of the warmly scented pecans are sprinkled over the top. Follow my pointers & learn the technique for making a little seasonal goodness.

Start by coarsely chopping the pecans yourself. Run a chef knife over the pecan halves 2 or 3 times & that is all. The size will make the presentation much more appealing. Melt the butter in a small bowl & toss the nuts in it until they are well coated. Spread the mixture onto a parchment paper lined half sheet pan & bake them as directed.

Combine the cinnamon & the sugar in a small bowl. As soon as the pecans have been removed from the oven, lift the parchment paper & funnel them into the bowl. Toss the nuts around just a bit until well coated.
