Buttery Salted Roasted Pecans


My final decision about my banana splits was about nuts. Nuts or no nuts? Sweet nuts? Nuts in syrup? What kind of nuts?

I decided on pecans. Of course. Not sweet, but rather buttery and salty.

Be careful. Once you taste one, you will eat a handful before you even notice. And it will be hard to stop with that.

Buttery Salted Roasted Pecans
1/2 stick butter (4 Tbsp.)
2 cups pecan halves
Coarse sea salt, to taste

Melt butter in a medium mixing bowl. Add pecan halves and stir until well coated. Spread on a sheet pan and sprinkle with sea salt.

Roast at 275 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Spread on parchment paper to cool.


  1. These look so good, they might not last for the banana splits!

  2. Melynda, these are also delicious on a green salad. Or in chicken salad. Thanks for your comment.
