Sweet and spicy pecans made with xylitol, earth balance, cayenne pepper and salt.

Recipe Ingredients for Sweet & Spicy Pecans

2 cup, halves Pecans
2 tbsp Original Natural Buttery Spread
1/4 tsp Spices Cayenne Pepper
3 tbsp Xylitol
0.5 tsp Salt, Table

Recipe Directions for Sweet & Spicy Pecans

  1. Use a large enough skillet so the pecans are in one layer. A nonstick skillet works well.

  2. Melt the butter in the skillet and add the hot pepper.

  3. Add pecans to skillet and cook over medium heat. Stir every 30 seconds. After 2 or 3 minutes, stir them constantly until they just begin to brown. Pecans burn quickly, so keep your eyes on them. If the butter starts smoking before this point, turn off the heat and call them done. Stir in cinnamon, salt, and xylitol. Remove from pan and place in bowl (pecans can still burn sitting in the hot pan). When they seem cool enough to taste, adjust seasonings accordingly (if you want more salt or xylitol)
