Author Debi


  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread pecans on a cookie sheet, and bake 6-7 minutes or until toasted (this can also be done in the toaster oven). Allow pecans to cool.
  2. Process pecans in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add softened butter and remaining ingredients. Pulse until well blended. Place in a small bowl, cover, and chill until ready to serve. Allow butter to sit at room temperature about 30 minutes to soften before serving.
