Rosemary Spiced Pecans

Rosemary Spiced Pecans

These delicious nuts take just minutes to make, and are infinitely adaptable.


Heat the oven to 350 degrees, place about 1 pound of unsalted pecan halves on a cookie sheet and toast them, stirring every so often, for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 2 teaspoons brown sugar, 2 teaspoons kosher salt, and 1 tablespoon melted butter; add the toasted nuts, and toss to coat.  


Check out Wondertime magazine for the complete recipe, and several other make-it-yourself treats.
