The beauty of nut butters is how quickly they can elevate your basic meat-and-cheese sandwich. Don't be afraid to experiment. Pecan butter is a great example of this truth. A roasted, toasted spread, pecan butter warms up any dish that uses it. In this no-cook sandwich, it's especially delicious with buttery brie and luxurious prosciutto. Spinach leaves add a great crunch—pile on a few extra leaves if you have them. A burst of warmth comes from pepper jelly, and it's a great complement to the earthy pecan butter.
