Rosemary Pecans Recipe

Rosemary-Sesame Pecans Are the Perfect Back-Pocket Appetizer

This holiday entertaining season, make certain to master at least one back-pocket appetizer — a treat so easy and low-stress that you can whip it up in a flash to fill out a menu or have it on hand if guests will be unexpectedly popping over. I can tell you now, these salty-piney-sweet nuts will be mine.

Crisp and crunchy, with a hit of breath-freshening rosemary, these nuts are dangerous in the best way; I can't seem to stop at a small handful, much less one or two. I suspect you will feel the same way.

As a bonus, these could easily be packaged up and given as hostess gifts.

  5. Spread the pecans out on the baking sheets, and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the nuts are toasted, and the coating is dry.
