I am always looking for new party nibbles recipes. So, I grabbed this one when I saw it in the 'Fast & Fabulous Party Foods and Appetizers' cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir pecans in butter for 1 minute.
  3. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning and sugar over nuts and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar has melted and nuts are glazed, about 2 minutes.
  4. Pour pecans onto a plate and cool slightly.
  5. Taste and season with salt, if needed.

Easy, Easy, Easy and they are tasty too! I used recipe #186029 and toasted my pecans in the pan for a few extra minutes before adding the sugar and seasoning. Merci Sarah! Made for ZWT 5 by an Epicurean Queen.
