Honey Toasted Pecans – Ready in Just 15 Minutes!


Honey Toasted Pecans

bowl of 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!
