Roasted Pecans 香烤山核桃仁

【Roasted Pecans】
by MaomaoMom

My family loves all kinds of snacks! You can find roasted peanuts and cashew, dried fruits, sesame snaps, chocolates, and many other snacks in our kitchen cupboards. We used to buy roasted mini-walnuts every time we visited China. Recently, we found that Costco’s pecan halves can be roasted and they have a similar taste to Chinese mini-walnuts that we love. I made these roasted pecans for our dinner guests. These roasted pecans disappeared quickly.

3: Preheat oven to 330F. Line a large 13×18 baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread out pecans on the baking sheet (Picture 4).

4: Bake at 330F for 20 minutes. Take out and stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon to prevent overheat at certain spots. Spread out evenly again. Bake for another 4 minutes until inside of pecans turns light brown. Turn off the oven and let baked pecans stay in the oven for two more minutes.

5: Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Store them in airtight containers in fridge. You now can enjoy a handful of roasted pecans every day.
