Honey Toasted Pecans
Pecans are a big deal in Texas. Growing up, we used to get at least one giant gift box of pecans from my dad's accounting clients. I have distinct memories sitting by the fireplace (not with a fire because hello, it was Houston so easily 75 degrees outside) with a legit nutcracker chomping on fresh pecans.
This recipe came about because I really needed something to top my pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake. And these are pretty freakin' delicious! You can put them on salads, mix them with dried fruit for a snack, top your holiday desserts, or just eat them off the parchment paper once they have cooled off. Enjoy, y'all!
- 1 cup pecans

Toss pecans in warmed honey and spread out evenly on cookie sheet.

Remove from oven and spread out to cool on parchment paper.
Cool completely and then try not to eat them all at once.
