Fresh pesto is SO much better than the store-bought version. And, pesto made with tender pecan halves is the new, popular kid on the block. Though pesto is traditionally made with pine nuts (and those are delicious, too!), you can make a fresh batch at home with a variety of nuts. Due to their high oil content, pecans make an excellent option.

These honey cinnamon roasted pecans offer the perfect balance of sweet and nutty. We love this roasted pecan recipe because all you need to do is combine a few ingredients, coat the pecans, and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes (or less). The spice of the cinnamon compliments the sweetness of the honey and all flavors make the nutty undertones ever so satisfying.
