Pecans are the most versatile tree nut — they can be eaten alone — raw, roasted or flavored — as a healthy, delicious snack or they can enhance almost any recipe as an ingredient. Pecans are perfect as a topping or ingredient in salads, vegetables, yogurt, oatmeal, sauces, breads and, of course, every kind of dessert. Store pecans in the freezer and have them on hand year-round.

1 cup pecan halves Maraschino Cherries 4 cans (10-count) refrigerated biscuits 1 1/2 sticks butter 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons cinnamon

Continue layering with sugar/cinnamon coated biscuit pieces, placing pecans and cherries as you layer, until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the layered biscuits. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart and enjoy.
