orange and rosemary pecan recipeOver the holiday, I fell in love with these pecans.  I think that I made 3 batches of them.  I always make my Candied Pecans to give as gifts, but I had to include these pecans in my holiday gift baskets this year as well.  My favorite flavor combination is orange and rosemary, and combined with sweet and salty, these pecans are to die for.  You could use any combination of nuts that you like, but I love pecans.  These nuts are good to have around the house during the holidays, they go perfectly with a cheese plate, and make a really nice hostess gift.

I got this recipe from my good friend Kristi, who got it from Real Simple.

I am running out the door, but I also wanted to share that my DIY Photo Wall is being featured on Apartment Therapy today!

    These are gorgeous, can’t wait to try them. I think rosemary is my favorite herb and it sounds wonderful paired with orange!

  5. I made rosemary chipotle almonds before Xmas . These look crazy good!

    Just saw your banana bread on FG when I was checking a submission. Congrats!

  6. Candied nuts (typically almonds for me!) are a holiday staple of mine as well. But these sounds like a really fun variation on the typical roasted nut. Can’t wait to try them out!

    These look perfect! I’ve seen people make this type of thing with so much butter and sugar that it becomes clumps of sugar with nuts sticking out, not to mention sickening sweet! Your pecans, however, look wonderfully balanced. Rosemary and sage are my favorite cold-weather herbs.

  8. Ooooh I love the flavors in this recipe. I’m a total pecan fanatic and I can only imagine how fantastic they must taste!!

  9. Deanna says:

    Yum! Orange and rosemary are one of my favorite flavor combinations. Pecans are one of my favorite nuts, these must be addictive.

    I just made these and they are delicious!

    Oh my goodness–I just sat down with a little bowl of these pecans (and cashews) to catch up on Baked Bree and lo and behold, there was the recipe for the very thing I was eating! I cannot get enough of these tasty bits, and have made them several times since Blue’s party too. How thoughtful of you to share the recipe for this nutty goodness. Now I can’t wait to try my hand at the slow cooker nuts!

  12. I had to come back and comment on how delicious these turned out! I’m catering for 40 this afternoon and I just made a triple batch using a mix of pecans and almonds. They are so unbelievably good! Thank you!!

    I’m wondering if these end up dry – so i can package them for gifts without the cello bags getting greasy looking, or if they are more suitable for eating at a party (as opposed to packaging for gifts). They’ll need to sit for a week in a bag before they are given out! Thanks – they look sooo delicious!

  14. Elizabeth says:

    These turned out so light and fragrant! I’ve had enough holiday sweet stuff and am going to make another batch of these :)
