Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300 F.

Step 2

Place melted butter and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Add pecans and toss until completely coated. Pour the pecans onto a baking sheet and spread into a single layer.

Step 3

Bake pecans for 20-25 minutes until they're toasted and fragrant, stirring every 5 minutes so they don't burn.

Step 4

In a medium bowl, combine the salt, cinnamon, garlic powder, red pepper and sugar.

Step 5

Remove the pecans from the oven and add to the spice mixture. Toss to coat. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

These are addictively tasty! I made some for a gift, and then immediately made another batch to keep for myself. I have to dole them out in a small bowl or I'll end up eating far too many of them at once. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
