Here is a non sweet snack with pecans. It makes a great present for your friends.

4 tablespoons unsalted Butter

2 cups Pecan Halves

2 tablespoons Light Brown Sugar

2 tablespoons fresh Rosemary, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika

1 teaspoon Chili Powder or Ground Cumin

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon Tabasco

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground Black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

Heat butter in a saucepan set over medium heat. Add pecans and cook, stirring constantly, until nuts are toasted, about 5 minutes.

Add brown sugar, rosemary, Worcestershire, paprika, chili powder, salt, Tabasco, black pepper, and cinnamon and stir until pecans are evenly coated. Continue cooking pecan, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

Cool pecans in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Stir occasionally to break up sugar and spices.

I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
