Our first Appy Hour recipe for Sweet + Spicy Pecans is toasty, tasty and sure to delight your guests. They pair lovely with cheese, olives and cured Italian meats like sopressata or prosciutto.

4 cups of pecans
2 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.  Add sugar and spices, stir to combine.  Add pecans to pan and using a spatula coat the pecans with the butter and spice mixture.  Remove pan from heat.  Spread pecans evenly on a cookie sheet and bake in a 300 degree oven for 12 minutes, being careful not to over bake.

Try and eat just a few… we dare you.
