Tasty Pecan Jewel Cookies With A Kick DIY

Unique Christmas cookie recipe #12.  You should probably give your guests a heads up when you serve these DIY spicy pecan cookies.  A little spice is nice but a lot isn’t much fun in my book.  I might try these with an orange marmalade.  Yum!  Thanks to Cooking Channel for the fun recipe idea.


  • 3 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup raspberry jam (the jam should have a thick consistency because it spreads during baking)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup light or dark brown sugar, packed
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature (1 1/2 cups)
