Make plenty of these mildly sweet and salty nuts—they are great to have on hand over the holidays.


  • 1 pound pecan halves
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spread pecans on a large baking sheet.
  • Roast until fragrant, about 12 minutes. Watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  • Combine brown sugar, salt, thyme, rosemary, pepper and cayenne in a small bowl.
  • Transfer the roasted pecans to a large bowl, drizzle with oil and toss well to coat completely.
  • Sprinkle with the spice mixture and toss again.
  • Serve warm or let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
