- Ready In:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake pecans in a single layer until ligthly toasted and fragrant, stirring occasionally. This should take about 7 minutes. Use your nose to judge when they are done -- they shouldn't smell burned. Cool and finely chop the pecans. (You can make more toasted pecans than you need for this recipe. The toasted pecans can be used for lots of things!).
- Stir together 1/2 cup butter, softened; 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans, and 2 tbsp honey.
- Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, or freeze up to 1 month.

YUM! This is delicious...I made it, as written, for pancakes and waffles "Sunday"! DH fixes one or the other, and this is what we are having on them tomorrow! OMGoodness, I really hate to wait that long. Sweet and nutty, the toasting of the pecans really does bring out their flavor. Thanks so much for sharing, breezermom!
Wow!! We used this butter on our breakfast waffles and it was delicious!! The toasted pecans really put this over the top. My husband doesn't use butter on his waffles, but after tasting mine, he slathered his with the butter. I will be having it on my French toast tomorrow and I can't wait to see how well it works with that. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!<br/>**Made for 2012 Football Pool**
YUM! You know a recipe if good if as soon as soon as you've finished eating you think "when can I have that again?"! I served this both times (yes, I ate it two days in a row) on french toast that had cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla in the egg mix. At first I was concerned this would be too sweet, but it isn't at all, and if I were to put in on biscuits I'd probably add more honey. The toastyness of the pecans is just the right foil for that little bit of honey sweetness. I don't use syrup so this was a nice treat for my toast. My second day of french toast I had this with Recipe #446975 and whipped cream which was really gilding the lily, but I'll have to say they went really well together. I cut this down to a 1/4 cup serving or else I be contemplating another dish of french toast with this delicious butter!
