Glazed Pecans, or any nut for that matter, can easily be glazed. Spiced up with your favorite flavorings, nuts are the perfect gift or snack!
2 T butter
2 T maple syrup
2 T packed dark brown sugar
2 c pecan halves (8 oz)
Optional: Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Vanilla, Cinnamon, Cumin, Red Pepper flakes, Cardamom
Heat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add brown sugar and syrup. Mix well. Cook until bubbly, stirring constantly.
Add pecans, cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until coated. They do soak up most of the butter mixture. At this point stir in a seasoning of your choice, or not. These are good just the way they are! Do not let them burn. Pour and spread out on the parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake 6 -8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store in a tightly covered container.
