How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 250º F. Arrange the pecans on a cookie sheet and toast, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 10 minutes.

Lightly coat the cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray. Spread the pecans in a single layer on the sheet. Bake 1 hour or until the pecans are dry, stirring once or twice.
