Molasses Glazed Pecans
Pecans are a very Southern ingredient. Here's an interpretation of a candied pecan.
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups pecan halves
Preheat oven to 325℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add brown sugar, molasses and salt; stir well. Bring to a low boil and simmer three minutes or until bubbly, stirring constantly. Add pecan halves and cook, stirring constantly, one minute or until pecans are evenly coated. Spread mixture over parchment. Bake 10 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
