Maple Glazed Pecans
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
These nuts only take 15 minutes from start to finish (unless you have to crack them out of the shells and then that can take all day!)
Recipe type: Snack
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2 cups shelled pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup (it would be an insult to the good nuts to use fake maple syrup)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F
  2. Place a small pan on medium heat and add the butter, sugar and maple syrup.
  3. Stir until it comes to a boil and then toss in the nuts.
  4. Keep cooking for another 3 minutes or so and then pour the nuts on a baking sheet covered with baking paper or a silpat (I used the paper)
  5. Separate the nuts into a single layer and place in the oven for 6-8 minutes. At the 5½ minute mark I stirred the nuts and made sure they were in a single layer and baked for another 2½ minutes.
  6. Take out of the oven and leave to cool. They'll be dry, sweet and mapley and perfect for guests or for yourself.
