Slow-Roasted Georgia Pecans

  • Yield 16 servings

Enhance pecans’ natural sweetness with butter and salt – that’s all they need.


1 pound Georgia pecan halves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 250F. Position rack in center of oven.
  2. Spread pecans in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and place pan on the center rack.  Toast, stirring, until pecans begin to color, about 1 hour.  Don’t let them darken.
  3. Remove pecans from oven.  Cut butter into small pieces and stir into pecans so butter melts.  Return to oven and let toast 10 more minutes.
  4. Remove pecans from oven and salt to taste, toss and let cool.
