Pecans are my favorite nut. I love them in pies, cookies, candies, cakes....but my most FAVORITE way is toasted/roasted with butter. This version takes little time, and the few minute to brown the butter before tossing with the pecans makes all the difference. So delicious to serve alone for snacking, or with a cheese and fruit plate. Yum! Try them and see!
1/4 cup butter
4 cups pecan halves
2 t. kosher salt
2 t. sugar
1 T. chopped fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 3 - 5 minutes or just until butter begins to turn golden brown.
Immediately remove pan from heat, and stir in pecans. Arrange pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and sugar.
Bake pecans at 350 degrees or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Sprinkle with rosemary. Bake 2 more minutes. Cool completely on baking sheet (about 30 minutes). Store in airtight container.
