These are very easy to prepare and they're a great snack. Melt a 1/2 stick of butter along with 1 1/2 tsp of ground cumin and 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper in a skillet or sauce pan. Stir for about one minute after the butter is completely melted. Remove pan from heat.
Pour 3 cups of pecan halves into the butter mixture along with 2 1/2 Tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp of salt. Mix well. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes @ 300 degrees.

Central Coast Syrah, ~$20
Dark fruit, a hint of chocolate, mild tannins and a nice finish. After being open for about 3 hours, the final glass showed a hint of vanilla bean. I believe this wine scored 94 and I would buy it again. I would decant the next bottle for a couple hours and then pour. The last couple glasses were the best to me.
It goes well with Frank Sinatra's and Bing Crosby's holiday music, a fire and good friends. It's great for sipp'n & shar'n. Cheers to all...
