Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ cups pecan halves
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup fresh or frozen, thawed cranberries

1 Tbs. butter or margarine, melted

½ tsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. salt

Instructions: 

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread pecan halves on baking sheet, and toast 5 to 7 minutes in oven, or until lightly browned and fragrant. (Do not overbake; pecans burn quickly.)

AMAZING! A great twist on an old favorite! I love the tartness of the cranberries and they balance out the sweetness of all the sugar.
