Roasted Spicy Pecans, 'tis the season...
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.
