Helado de mantequilla de pecán. El pecán es un fruto parecido a la almendra muy popular en Texas y en la zona del sur de Estados Unidos.

Pecan-pacana o nuez

Hola Boricua - Pecan means Nuez or Pacana. Nuez is a more commom name. Specially in Puerto Rico. I would translate it "Helado o Mantecado de Nuez en/con Mantequilla". I can find a more appropiate translation if you can wait until tonight.

helado de mantequilla de pacana

Nuez is a nut - ANY nut.
Pecans are pacanas.
Granted, my unsofisticated palate can't tell helado de nuez from helado de pacana but I can't taste the difference between walnuts and pecans either- if you want to translate this correctly, go with the above.

Hope this helps! Suerte!

Helado de mantequilla y pacana o' nuez lisa

Butter pecan ice cream is made by sauteing pecans in butter until lightly browned. About 1/3 Cup pecans to 1 Tablespoon butter.
(I break the pecans into pieces) Combine 1 cup packed brown sugar with 2 beaten eggs and 1 to 1 1/2 cups half & half (medium heavy cream). Stir over low heat until mixture simmers. Stir occasionally while it simmers gently for 2 minutes; set aside. Stir in 1/2Cup whipping cream (heavy cream), vanilla and toasted pecans. Pour into ice cream canister. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Makes about 1 quart. Note-it can be made with white sugar, but the brown sugar is what makes it good! El nuez pacana tiene sabor mas delicado que los otros nueces. cocinando el nuez pacana en la mantequilla le aumenta el sabor lo mismo que tostando los nueces antes de usarlos en pasteles, etc.

helado de crema de nuez americana

Concuerdo con Yolanda sobre nuez americana. Tambien se le conoce como pacana pero no creo que sea muy conocido ese nombre. Yo haría la distinción entre nuez y pacana ( o nuez americana). Son realmente dos sabores diferentes y frutos diferentes.
No creo que necesites colocar la palabra mantequilla en tu traducción.
