Roasted crunchy chickpeas, made popular by low carb diets, now kid favorite sugar and cinnamon added! This is a high fiber, high protein snack! These crisp up as they cool. Adapted from The Sneaky Chef cookbook.
Totally addictive... these pecans are sweet, spicy, salty and crisp. A friend gave me some pecans for Christmas. I used the recipe she shared, a recipe from RecipeZaar, and another, from a third source. All three were good, but finally I came up with this recipe that satisfied my tastes, and my friends as well.
This recipe comes from the Southern Living Cookbook.
I made these a long time ago...long before I had a digital camera!
So I have no pictures this time! Sorry!
But hey...Go ahead...spice up your life a little!
There is a little bite here but not bad!
You can add more ground red pepper if you want it hotter.
Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.
Another great-tasting recipe from Touch of Home Best Holiday Recipes, 2008. NOTE: Make sure your candy thermometer is correct by testing it in boiling water -- It should read 212 degrees F. Cooking time is an estimate only.
Not your standard toasted nuts; sweet, yet slightly salty, with a flash of smokey fire. Goes great in soups (especially sweet potato or pumpkin) and salads or delicious on their own as a snack or party appetizer.
This is a recipe that I borrowed from a great friend and chef, Chef James. This recipe is easy and the pecans come out delicious. They have a slight sweetness from the honey, a salty, nutty flavor from the butter and of course the spicy cayenne kick. These are fantastic in salads or just by the handful.
