Author: Dédé Wilson


  • 2 cups (200 g) pecan or walnut halves
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) light corn syrup, brown rice syrup or Lyle’s golden syrup
  • 1/4 cup (36 g) sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Position rack in middle of oven. Preheat oven to 325°F/165°C. Spray a rimmed baking sheet pan with nonstick spray.

  2. Fold all of the ingredients together in a bowl using a silicone spatula to make sure the nuts are well coated. Scrape out onto prepared pan and spread into an even layer with space around the nuts.
  3. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once during baking to toast evenly. Nuts are done when sugar has melted and nuts are glazed and golden brown. Place pan on rack to cool completely. Store nuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.



  • Nuts are high in fat content and can spoil easily. Buy just what you need so that you will know they are fresh. Buying in bulk is very economical, if you have that choice.
