Candied Pecans

These are excellent!  Sweet, crunchy, and a wonderful addition to a fresh salad. 
  • 2 C. pecan halves
  • 1/4 C. (½ stick) butter
  • ½ C. dark brown sugar
  1. In a cast iron skillet, heat the butter over medium heat
  2. When the butter is fully melted, add the brown sugar and whisk the butter and sugar together
  3. Add the pecan halves and roast for 15 – 20 minutes
  4. Pour out onto wax paper and spread into a single layer
  5. Allow to cool completely, then crack into individual pieces and store in an airtight container
Tips and Tricks:
  • I serve these in a candy dish and on top of my Spinach Salad.
  • Chopped pecans can be used for this recipe, also.
