SWEET & SPICY ROASTED PECANS

~ All You magazine - 11/18/11

2 c. shelled pecan halves
1 t. cinnamon
2 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. cayenne
1/2 t. ginger
1 t. salt
3 T. unsalted butter, melted
2 T. packed light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread pecans on baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 10 minutes, shaking pan occasionally, until nuts are fragrant and light golden brown.
While nuts are roasting, combine cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, ginger and salt in a small bowl.
Remove toasted nuts from oven and place in a bowl. Toss with melted butter, brown sugar and spice mix while nuts are still hot, combining evenly. Let cool and serve.

Notes: I mix my spices, then mix the brown sugar into the spices, which makes for a little more even distribution on the nuts.
