  • 1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound raw pecan halves


  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 250° F and line large rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  2. 2

    Mix onion powder, garlic salt, curry powder and cayenne in small bowl. (Because I don't use onion powder much, I needed to break it up with a small fork.)

  3. 3

    Melt butter and honey in a saucepan over medium heat. Add pecan halves, stir to cover all the nuts with butter/honey mixture. Remove from heat.

  4. 4

    Add spice mixture and toss to coat evenly. Spread pecans in single layer on the foil-covered baking sheet.

  5. 5

    Bake pecans until dry and toasty, about 40 minutes. Take off of pan and cool completely on waxed paper. Separate the pecans. This mixture stores for up to 1 week.
