Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Spread pecans out on a baking sheet and place in oven for 6 to 8 minutes to toast. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix the onion and garlic into the cream cheese. Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

Just before serving, cut butter into pieces so it will melt faster and place in a saucepan. Add brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, dried mustard, and cayenne pepper and heat over medium-low, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved.

Stir pecans into butter mixture. Let cool a few minutes and then spoon on top of cream cheese.
