I realize that it is only the beginning of summer but I am ready for pecan pie. I thought about making a pie but I am trying to be a good girl and not overdo it on the desserts. So today I made some roasted candied pecans and they really satisfied my craving. This recipe worked great. I sprinkled them with a little more salt once they were in the pan because I love that salty sweet contrast.
It only took 1 hour and the oven only needed to be 225°F so it didn’t heat up the kitchen too much. I made a double batch too. And the best part is that they are delicious. I plan on using them in salads and as a snack. Tonight I want to make a peach, gorgonzola, and candied pecan salad.
