pecans & walnuts
light brown sugar
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt butter in large saucepot over medium heat.
Add nuts, stir well to coat.
Add brown sugar, stirring until coated.
Add bourbon. (Mixture will bubble.)
Stir frequently for 3-5 minutes or until the sauce changes from liquid to grainy.
Pour nuts onto prepared baking sheet. Using spatula, spread into thin layer.
After 2 minutes, separate clusters using hands. (Mixture should be cooler)
If nuts still are sticky, they can be baked for 5-10 minutes in a 350 oven.
These nuts will have an almost sandy coating on them when done. While not shiny and sleek, it allows you to get more sweetness, butteriness, and bourbon in each bite.
