Yummy snack to have on hand instead of chocolate and chips.

Ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 cup Pecan Halves
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon water
1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, combine the salt and spices; set aside. In a large heavy skillet, melt butter. Add walnuts and pecans; cook over medium heat until nuts are toasted, about 4 minutes.
