Vanilla Honey Roasted Pecans

April 14th is National Pecan Day.

I’ve been wanting to try using the honey we brought back from Hawaii and after a trip to the Marietta Square farmer’s market in Atlanta where we inhaled Angel Pecans from Ye Olde Christmas and Candy Shoppe I knew that roasted nuts in honey would be a great way to utilize the Hawaiian honey. But first, I needed to do test runs with cheaper products.

National Pecan Day was an excellent excuse to try it out. I already had pecans in the pantry and my friend Tara of Tara’s Multicultural Table gave us vanilla bean infused honey for Christmas. I happily used that, roasted the pecans in the oven, and tossed with a little powdered sugar.

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place honey in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 20 seconds.
  3. Toss pecans in honey. Place pecans in a single layer on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  4. Remove pecans from baking sheet and allow to cool in a single layer. Toss in powdered sugar, to taste.
