Originally, these crunchy nuts were used to top a salad, but I adjusted the recipe so they could stand on their own as a snack. Cayenne pepper gives them a little kick, making the nuts a fun party starter or hostess gift. — Terry Maly, Olathe, Kansas


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound pecan halves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the butter, cinnamon, salt and cayenne. Stir in pecans until evenly coated.
  2. Transfer to an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until pecans are toasted, stirring every 5 minutes.
