My lovely friends Dawn and Dana brought these over and now I can't stop eating them! If you like things a bit more on the spicy side, put in a bit more hot sauce, or maybe cayenne. These have a great buttery texture, but if you like nuts a bit more dry, put a wee less butter. ENJOY!
4 C pecans 4 TBS butter 2 tsp hot sauce 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt 4 cloves garlic minced Preheat oven to 250º Melt butter. Sauté garlic for one minute. Add hot sauce and salt. Mix with nuts and spread out on to a cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake until toasted; about 45-60 minutes (depending on your oven and type of cookie sheet). Keep an eye on them so they don't burn. Start checking at 30 minutes.
