It’s Derby week in Kentucky.

You don’t have to make a trip to Churchill Downs to enjoy all of the long-standing traditions that embody the Kentucky Derby.  This year, I’m going to break out my wide brim hat and celebrate in the comfort of my home with several “Derby-inspired” dishes and drinks. Over the next few posts, I will be sharing them with you.

For one of my snacks, I’m making Brown Sugar and Buttered Derby Pecans. These delicious pecans are perfect for any party, added as a topping to a salad, or during those endless writing sessions.

I added 2 tablespoons of Buffalo Trace bourbon to the original recipe for a different twist. A little shot of bourbon makes everything better, right?

Just stir in the bourbon (of your choice) when adding the pecans, brown sugar, and rosemary.

Serve warm in a decorative bowl for big groups or in shot glasses for fun individual portions.  They can also be stored in an airtight container to savor long after the party.
