  • 2 cups of raw nuts I used 1 cup of pecan halves and 1 cup of whole almonds.
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch or two of salt


  • Toast the nuts in a dry pan for about 5 minutes over medium low heat, while stirring so they don’t burn.
  • When done, pour them into a separate container. Put all the rest of the ingredients in your hot pan, (Be CAREFUL with the water; it spatters.) and stir for about 2 minutes till it thickens.
  • Pour the nuts back in the pan and stir well while cooking for 2 minutes more.
  • Then pour the nuts onto a foil lined cookie sheet, spreading them out, and let sit till cooled.
  • Keep in a sealed container.
