Toasted Pecans

I needed toasted pecans for a cookie recipe that Grandma Mo sent me. I found this recipe in a quick internet search. I made enough only for the cookie recipe. The problem was … I tried a pecan and then didn’t want to stop eating them! I didn’t think you could make pecans any better. Apparently salt and butter will do that to almost anything!


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 6 cups shelled pecans
  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Pour the butter into a medium bowl, and mix in the pecans. Stir until the pecans are well coated.
  3. Arrange coated pecans in a single layer on one or two medium baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven approximately 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cool and store in covered containers.
