INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the brown sugar, maple balsamic, EVOO and water in a medium-sized bowl.  Whisk together well. Add pecans to maple glaze. Use a large spoon to stir making sure all the pecans are coated well. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush with EVOO.  Spread pecans onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Roast pecans in oven for 20 minutes tossing 2-3 times throughout cooking time.  With different ovens varying in temperature, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the pecans during the last 3 minutes; they can burn easily. Remove pecans from oven and stir frequently throughout cooling time (about 5 minutes) to prevent clumping.
