Buttered Rum Glazed Pecans are a quick, tasty holiday treat! Place some in decorative jars and give as gits or serve them on a holiday treats table. I’ve seen several recipes for spiced pecans. Lots of them looked great, but many of them called for cloves, pumpkin spice or egg whites. I’m not a fan of cloves or pumpkin and I wasn’t sure about the need for egg whites. So, what do you do when you don’t find just what you’re looking for? You create your own recipe!
