During the holiday season we like to make this pecan recipe for gifts for our friends. I seem to have a small problem because too many of them end up in my belly and not to our friends.


  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine

  • 4 cups pecan halves (about 1 lb)

  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning, or to taste


Put butter and pecans in large, shallow roasting pan. Toast in preheated 325F oven 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with seasoning and toast 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Cool, then pack airtight and store in cool dry place. Will keep 1 month – – – – – – not at my house

Makes 4 cups.
