Based on the last comments, the discussion may turn to desserts - apparently Southerners save all the sugar not used in cornbread, grits and biscuits and put it in their desserts. While I may not make pecan pie (too sweet for even my northern tastes), I DO make some tasty deviled pecans.
1 pound shelled pecans
1/3 cup butter -- melted
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place nuts in a shallow baking pan. Combine remaining ingredients, pour over nuts and stir well.
Bake 20 minutes, stirring twice during the cooking. Let cool on thick paper towels. Store in airtight container.
I brought these to a wedding shower I helped throw - the father of the bride ate half the container before we even started the event. They are just a tad addictive.
