Pecans for special occasions

By Olivia Fowler

For the Courier

The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without pecans. They add something to the entire experience of food prep for special dinners, and I hope we never have to live without them.

These recipes are all aimed at satisfying your sweet tooth. Don’t worry about the calories, the sugar, the fat and the starch. Just think about the flavor and the protein nuts bring to the table.

No matter when you bake these treats, they’ll always make it feel like a celebration.
