Follow these particular instructions for crisp, Buttery-Salted Roasted Pecans every time for a guilt-free snack or addition to your favorite dishes.
3 cups pecan halves, shelled and cleaned
3 1/2 tablespoons salted butter
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place pecans in a large bowl.
Melt butter and pour over pecans.
Sprinkle nuts with salt and stir all of the ingredients together several times, making sure pecans are all coated with butter and salt.
Single-layer the pecans on the parchment paper-lined pan.
Bake for 10-12 minutes then take out of the oven and turn the nuts over with long-handled tongs.
Return to oven for another 10-12 minutes being careful to not over-roast.
Remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly before storing in an airtight container like a glass jar with a screw-on lid or zip-top bag.
Keep a close watch on the pecans toward the end of the roasting not to overcook the nuts darkening them and ruining the taste.
Roasted pecans have a richer flavor than unroasted and are delicious in other foods like salads, cookies, casseroles, and desserts.
