A couple of weeks ago, Sam from Oh Nuts contacted me and asked if I’d like to try some of their product.
I said sure, because who in their right mind turns down free nuts?
I couldn’t wait to get started, but then life happened.
So, yesterday, life finally decided to take a nap, and that gave me the chance to make something with my pecans.
A couple of years ago, my sister gave me this fabulous recipe for Honey Spiced Pecans. I was going to make those, till I saw my BFF, Paula Deene, making Praline Pecans on her show.
What to do…what to do.
You see, I heart pralines.
I heart them with all my heart. My dad got me hooked on them via Praline Pecan Ice cream. Thanks daddy.
But I also heart my sister’s recipe.
So, I did what any undecided woman would do, and made up my own recipe.
This recipe is not only easy, but it is quick. A perfect recipe for a Christmas gift as well.
First, we are going to start with our free pecans. I used them all.
Then take some brown sugar, cinnamon, clove and salt.
Mix them well and add to your pecans.
Pour heavy cream over top.
Dump out onto a parchmented cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, filling your house with the aroma of Thanksgiving and Christmas all in one, and give them a stir.
Stick them back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
Give them another stir, and let cool.
Store in an airtight container, if there are any left.
Quick. Easy. And giftie too.
