Sweet n' Spicy Pecans

This is an easy snack that comes together in under ten minutes. Should be a perfect little munchie for tomorrow's pre-Thanksgiving festivities!

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon cayanne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups pecans

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the salt, sugar, and spices to the butter and mix with a whisk for 2 minutes until the air smells delicious.  Add in the pecans and stir for about 4 minutes until the mixture just starts to caramelize and the pecans soak up the mixture.  Pour into a glass dish and let cool.  These can be stored in a sealed container on your counter for a few days, or in the fridge for a couple of weeks.  But I assure you, they won't last that long.
