Recipe for Butter Roasted Pecans


    Butter Roasted Pecans

    Makes 2 cups

    2 cups pecan halves
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    2 tablespoons Kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon (or to taste) freshly ground black pepper

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Toss pecans in melted butter to coat evenly (or melt butter in a skillet, and toss pecans in melted butter that way). Spread nuts in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly.

    HINT: To make these less buttery (on your fingers) toss the hot roasted nuts, as soon as you remove them from the oven, in a brown paper bag - along with the seasonings. Then serve in a warm dish.
