Sweet and Spicy Pecans

Sweet and Spicy Pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spread pecans on a rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven for 5 to 7 minutes to lightly toast.
  3. Meanwhile, for the spice mixture, in a small bowl combine the sugar, rosemary, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; stir to mix. In an extra-large bowl, combine the melted butter and vanilla. Add the toasted pecans to the bowl with butter and vanilla; toss to coat. remove the pecans from the oven and add them to the butter and vanilla mixture, tossing to coat. Add the spice mixture; toss to coat evenly with spices.
  4. Spread coated pecans to the same baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until toasted and fragrant, stirring once halfway through. Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.
