“Snow white buttery toasted pecans that look wonderful placed on your holiday table. This is Bird's own recipe for something so simple and yet so yummy! Great for gift giving as well. These can be enjoyed year round. Be careful as they can become addicting! If you'd like to send your senses into a yummy frenzy of 'hot & sweet', try adding a dash or two of cayenne pepper into the mix. ;)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F Place pecans into a large wide bowl. Set aside.
  2. Add spices to melted butter in a small bowl and stir. Pour over pecans, tossing gently to coat. Spread pecans evenly in a single layer onto a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Place pecans in a plastic grocery bag filled with the powdered sugar. Holding the front and back sides of the bag, roll pecans by alternating lifting each side to tumble the pecans to coat thoroughly (like a tumbler or cleaning a bowling ball).
  4. Shake off excess sugar and place into a decorative serving dish (covered if not eating right away).
