Peppered Glazed Pecans

This recipe is from my friend, Mary. Mary gave these pecans to me as a Christmas gift last year.
O-M-G! These are dangerously good!! I had to text her for the recipe. I told her I couldn't stop eating them and didn't think there would be any for Chicken Legs to sample that night. 

Mary gladly sent over the recipe. The pecans are very simple to make. I've made them several times. They are great for homemade gifts, parties and snacking. You might want to double or triple the recipe. They go fast!

  1. Hey Stephanie, Is this supposes to be 2 tbsp butter instead of 2 tsp ? Mine didn't turn out and the brown sugar and syrup hardened before coating pecans. What did I do wrong?

    1. you may have cooked it too long or over too high of heat. I use just shy of a tablespoon of butter.
