Easy Toasted Pecans | Sweet & Savory


Hey, hey! I hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving! We sure did. I’m not sure what happened, but all of a sudden it’s super warm here and I’m ready for Winter to come back! How am I supposed to feel festive while I decorate for Christmas when it’s 60 degrees outside!? 🙂

I’m so happy to share this quick and easy recipe for toasted pecans. This recipe has been made around the holidays by my family for decades. I remember Memaw making these when I was little. She usually had them in a candy dish for us to nibble out of. Good memories.

I decided to also make my own spin on the toasted pecans savory version with my own sweet idea. Both are delicious and festive. You could easily make these for gifting in treat bags or little tins. 🙂

  1. I love to give food gifts this time of year and these would be perfect for that. Your two different versions sound so good!

  2. Was making these and discovered I was out of cinnamon, how this happened is beyond me! So I grabbed the pumpkin pie spice and WOW these are delicious! Especially good for all those pumpkin spice lovers….

  3. Thank you, for sharing this recipe with us!
    And I could even use a sugar substitute if I do keto again!

    I’ve never had red iced tea so can’t comment on how close to the real recipe this might be but I love the idea that you’re trying to recreate something which you had tasted all those years ago
