Pecans, the Star Ingredient

Central to this recipe are, of course, the pecans themselves. Opt for the finest quality pecans available, prioritizing whole pecan halves for optimal presentation. Additionally, the inclusion of honey serves as the secret ingredient, endowing the pecans with a lustrous finish and enhancing their overall allure.

Versatile Treat for Any Occasion

While these glazed pecans make for a delightful holiday treat, there’s no need to limit their enjoyment to special occasions alone. Keep a batch on hand for whenever cravings strike, ensuring a quick and convenient solution to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Storage Tips

To preserve the freshness of your glazed pecans, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. For extended freshness, refrigerate them for up to three weeks, or freeze them for up to two months, remembering to label and date the container for easy reference.

Homemade Glazed Pecans


  • 2 ½ cups (250 g) pecans, halved
  • ¼ cup (50 g) light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup (85 g) honey
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the pecans, brown sugar, honey, salt, and melted butter until the pecan halves are evenly coated.
  3. Spread the coated pecans evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring them at the 10 and 15-minute marks to ensure even cooking. The pecans should achieve a deep brown color when done.
  5. Remove from the oven and stir the pecans, spreading them out on the baking sheet. Allow them to cool completely before serving. If desired, return them to the oven for additional baking time to enhance crunchiness.
