I have something really easy yet delicious for you today!  Holiday baking is just around the corner and you may find recipes that require toasted pecans.  I was making an amazing side dish yesterday (will share soon) that called for toasted pecans, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this little tip.

If you haven’t ever toasted pecans, you’re in for a treat!  They fill your home with the most delicious aroma and baking them, adds a delightful bit of crunchiness to them.

You can just pop them in the oven to toast them……..but you know the saying “everything’s better with a little butter” ?  Well that certainly applies here!


You can melt a little butter and pour over pecans, or I like to just give them a few sprays with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and stir them up a little to coat.

Then, my friends, you have turned ordinary pecans into extraordinary pecans!!  Delicious right out of the bowl or in your favorite recipes!


just in case you want to print it up……..
