These toasted nuts are off the chain. Since Ty’s family lives in the heart of prime pecan-growing region, I always have a big bag of pecans in the freezer. I make this recipe in a larger batch to take to a party as a gift for the hosts.

Toasted Spiced Pecans

Spiced Toasted Pecans
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Maple Syrup or honey
  1. Melt the butter in a medium skillet and toast the pecans over medium high heat, stirring constantly to avoid having any burnt or dark spots. You are looking for a uniform darker color and a toasted fragrant aroma, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl blend the Worcestershire, garlic powder, Tabasco, and syrup.
  3. Add to the hot pan, toss to coat and continue to cook until liquid is evaporated and nuts are fairly dry to the touch.
  4. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste while warm.
  5. Store in airtight container.
