Sister Winemaker’s Sweet and Spicy Pecans
- 4 cups Shelled Pecan Halves
- 2 tsps Ground Cinnamon
- 4 tsps Chili Powder
- 2 tsps Cumin
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne - normally, I would use 1 but for the winery only 1/2
- 2 tsps Ground Ginger
- 2 tsps Salt
- 6 tbsps unsalted butter, melted
- 4 tbsps packed light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread pecans on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 8 minutes.
While the nuts are roasting, combine cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, ginger, and salt in a small bowl. Have melted butter ready to go when nuts come out.
Remove nuts from oven and place in a bowl. Toss with melted butter and spice mix combining evenly. Lastly, toss in the brown sugar.
