Savory Baked Pecans!

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

My friend who made them said she's use a dash of cayenne in the mix and less butter, but I really loved them! They are the same pecans I used for the crust of the pumpkin cheesecake a couple entries back. Turned out insanely delicious.
