3heaping cups raw pecan halves
Preheat an oven to 300°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Spread out pecans on the pan evenly, making sure not to overlap them. Use 2 sheets if necessary. Bake for 12 minutes, just until starting to smell strong. Be careful not to over bake because they quickly can turn from done to burnt.
Remove them from the oven and add to a food processor. Process for a full minute. Scrape down the sides and process again for another few minutes or so until very smooth and creamy.
Just make sure not to stop before it reaches the very velvety smooth consistency, like in the photo. It will be smoother than almond butter and very much like a liquid.
