I’ve said it many times and truly believe it’s true.

Simple is best.

That’s the first thing that came to mind when I decided to share this salted oven roasted pecan recipe. I’m not totally sure it should be called a recipe because it’s so simple…but we’re calling it that anyway!

So, here is the basic process. (There is a detailed, printable recipe below.) Place your pecans on a cookie sheet. Cut four tablespoons of salted butter, and then cut each tablespoon into six tiny pieces. Drop the little butter pats over the pecans as evenly as possible. Last, sprinkle one teaspoon of kosher salt all over the pecans. Put the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for ten minutes.

Take the pecans out of the oven and stir them really well so the butter and salt cover every single one! Put them back in the oven for eight to ten minutes more. Watch them at the end, so they don’t get too brown.

*If you are watching your salt intake, just roast the pecans with the butter and leave off the salt.

That’s it! All you need are three ingredients and less than thirty minutes. These roasted pecans would make a perfect homemade gift from the kitchen, so I went ahead and made some custom  labels. The labels come six to a page and fit the top of an eight ounce mason jar. It’s best to print them on good quality card stock. They can be attached with a piece of double sided tape, or you can punch a small hole in the top of the labels and tie them onto the jars with twine.

If you would like these labels, just fill out the form that appears at the end of this post, just below my signature. The labels will arrive in your email immediately. *Current OSP subscribers should go ahead and fill out the form and I’ll send the printables right away.

  1. Do you by chance have a sugared pecan recipe and tags?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      No I’m sorry…just the salted pecans.

  2. 3 stars
    I think too much butter is used. I put 2 cups nuts and mine was greasy. Next time I will decrease the amount of butter. Otherwise they were good.

  3. Madhu Chatwani says:

    Thanks for the printable in advance! Easy and tasty!

  4. Ann, your blog is lovely and your recipes are always wonderful. In the last week I have made the rosemary salt, the lavender sugar scrub and these pecans are on my list of to dos for tomorrow. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas.

    This is a keeper recipe for me! I am going to use it for some thank you gifts for a group of friends who always help me out! Thanks for another grand idea!

  7. Karen Mary says:

    Perfect! I was looking for a little gift for an open house that I’ll be hosting this summer. Thanks so much! And yes, the fact that you provided a printable to use is stellar of you! Can you tell us how many jars one recipe will fill? One or two or . . .? Now I’m thinking of Christmas!

  8. Making these ASAP! Can I just add extra salt, as I only use unsalted butter?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Vikki! Honestly, I don’t think you need any extra salt even with unsalted butter. One teaspoon doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s plenty!

  9. Wanda McDaniel says:

    Thanks for your lovely posts, we all enjoy them!
