Easy and delicious salted oven roasted pecans recipe. These roasted pecans are the perfect appetizer for parties or gatherings. Ready in under 30 minutes!
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.
For my current email subscribers, these labels can be found in the Members Only Library. If you aren’t currently on my list, just fill out the form that appears at the end of this post, just below my signature. The labels, and access to the library, will arrive in your email immediately.
