Toasting pecans brings out their flavor.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly spritz baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. To toast pecans, put them on a baking sheet and toast them just until they become aromatic, about 5 minutes.
  4. You have to watch them carefully as they are easily scorched.

Simple and clear, this recipe is great direction for toasting pecans! They definitely taste better after a turn in the oven for a few minutes! Thanks for sharing, benluc!
