Toasted pecans, ground cinnamon and a pinch of salt—these three ingredients are all you need to whip up this rich, creamy pecan butter. Enjoy it on toast, pancakes, baked goods and more!
- 2 cups raw pecan pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the pecans on a baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
- Place the pecans, kosher salt, and cinnamon in a food processor. Process on high speed for about 1 minute until crumbly, then scrape down the bowl. Process again for about 1 minute until creamy, then scrape down the bowl. Process for another minute or two until completely creamy and smooth, scraping as necessary. Taste and if desired, add a few pinches of additional salt and blend again until fully incorporated. Pour into a sealable jar and store refrigerated.
