INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups pecan halves

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. 1
    Preheat the oven to 300°F. Combine the butter, brown sugar, water, cayenne pepper and salt in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved.
  2. 2
    Add the pecans and toss until well coated. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the pecans are golden brown and toasted. Using a heat-proof rubber spatula, transfer the pecan mixture to a baking sheet and set aside to cool completely.
  3. 3
    Separate the pecans, if needed, and use immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to four days.
