We love this recipe when made with pecans, but any firm nuts, such as cashews or walnuts, will work well.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Stir together sugar, cream, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add pecans, and stir until well coated. Spread pecans on baking sheet in an even layer.

  • Bake, stirring every 5 minutes, until browned and toasted, 20 to 22 minutes. Sprinkle pecans with 3/4 teaspoon salt, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let cool.

Cook's Notes

Pecans can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

I made this recipe last year as part of my package of home-made gifts for my family. They loved them so much that when I visited this July, they requested I make these for them again. Recipe is a keeper, one thing though-you need to watch the pecans like a hawk, they can burn very quickly if you're not paying attention.
