Pecan Butter w/ Raisins & Cinnamon
The new champion in the nut butter category belongs to.....PECAN. And rightfully so, have you ever had a pecan pie? Enough said.
I jazzed up this butter with the addition of raisins and cinnamon. Delicious! I would recommend getting yourself a food processor for the sole purpose of making this. Or, maybe making friends, and bribing said friend to make some for you. The following methods of payment will be accepted:
Pecan Butter w/ Raisins and Cinnamon
2 cups pecans
1/3 cup raisins*
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1-3 tsp sunflower oil
Preheat oven to 325F. Line baking sheet with pecans and toast for 8-10 minutes watching carefully so as not to burn them. Allow to cool slightly.
Place toasted pecans into a food processor and process for 5-8 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of the bowl as needed. Once smooth and creamy, add raisins, cinnamon, and vanilla. Process for another 3-5 minutes.
Depending on consistency, add sunflower oil 1 tsp at a time. Blend.
Store in air-tight container in refrigerator.
