  1. I’m off to the store to buy what I need to make them. I’ll let you know how they turn out :).
    They look delicious and healthy too. How long do you think you could store them ? Thanks.

    1. Hi Peggy! Glad to hear it! I hope you enjoy them. According to similar recipes, they should last several weeks, and possibly longer if stored in the refrigerator or freezer. In any case, I think they would be eaten before they spoil.

  2. They are delicious… And I still had Rosemary in my garden which I could use. I’m giving jars of these nuts for Christmas gifts. Thank you Kim. Xoxo

  3. These savory pecan treats were delicious! Had them at a holiday party and they really taste better then the overly sugared pecans. The rosemary was such a refreshing compliment to the pecans. Definitely going to have them around as a healthier snack alternative. Thank you Kim.
