I came up with these to go with Steve's birthday Punkin' Slab Pie. When grandma told me that he wanted a pumpkin pie I couldn't believe my ears. Is this the same guy we helped crack pecans so he would make us a wonderful fresh pecan pie? Ok, then grandma. I'll make him that pumpkin pie but we must top it with pecans. I was going to make spiced pecans, but decided that I didn't want to take away from the spice combo in the pie. Pecans, salt and honey sounded perfect. I guess it tasted perfect too. At least a couple of people said so.
2 1/2 cups pecan halves
1 tsp vegetable or canola oil
1/3 tsp. fine sea salt
1/2 cup honey
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Stir together the pecans, oil and salt. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes.
- Bring the honey to a boil over medium heat in a medium saucepan.
- Add the baked pecans to the boiling honey and stir to coat for a minute or two.
- Let cool slightly, then spread on a piece of parchment paper (or wax paper) to cool and dry. Make sure to do this while they are still warm otherwise they will stick together. Allow to cool completely.
