With the fast approach of the holiday season having the larder well stocked with drinks and snacks for drop-in guests is a must, not to mention a great way to treat yourself after a long day of shopping, decorating, or trimming the tree. Here is a recipe that is quick and easy and always a hit. Watch your guests as they reach for a couple. They'll pop them into their mouths expecting the traditional pecan, but instead will make satisfying yummy sounds, and reach for more. This is usually followed by, "Boy these are good," a note of surprise in their voice. It never fails. I served these with drinks before dinner and the Rams game yesterday and they elicited the usual response.
|Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.|
Measure out 4 cups of pecans
and place into a large bowl.
|Melt 1/2 cup butter in a medium saucepan and add:|
4 teaspoons Worchestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
1-1/2 teaspoons cumin
|Drizzle melted butter and seasonings over |
pecans and toss to coat.
|When completely coated with seasonings and sugar, pour onto rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring periodically to assume uniform toasting.|
|When toasted, remove from oven and pour |
onto paper towels to allow excess butter to be absorbed. Cool. Store in airtight containers.
Bet you can't eat just one!
