The holiday season's in full-swing. Like you, there's lots of things still left on my to-do list, and I'll probably still be adding some last-minute items, right up until guests arrive. When I entertain, I like to keep things simple. There's just no reason to make things more complicated than they need to be! The recipe here is a great one to use year-round for a sweet and savory snack, or to garnish a soup or salad.
Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy and safe holiday season!
4 Tb. butter
½ c. maple syrup
1 ½ tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 1/3 c. pecans
Melt the butter with the syrup, salt and cayenne pepper in a pan over low heat. Add the pecans and stir to mix. Leave them on the heat for 3 minutes.
Spread onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and bake at 300 until dry. Enjoy!
