Description

Why go to Savannah when you can make these pralines in the comfort of your own kitchen!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Whipping Cream
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F.

Chop pecans and place on baking sheet or shallow pan.
Bake pecans for 8-10 minutes or until pecans are toasted and fragrant.

In a medium saucepan, bring brown sugar, whipping cream and butter to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
Gently stir in toasted pecans allowing mixture to thicken and cool slightly.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Drop heaping spoonfuls of mixture onto paper and allow to harden/cool for at least 30 minutes.

Mine never thickened up. They were runny…. any idea what I did wrong?

I can’t wait to try this one. I tried a praline recipe today that I got out of a cookbook and they did not turn out. These sound a little bit easier and the ingredients are different so I’m hoping this will be the one!

This recipe looks right up my alley—–easy and yummy! Was wondering if the “butter” is the real unsalted butter, and not stick margarine? ( ie.,Parkay, etc.)

Would this be a freezable candy?

I’m almost sorry that I now know how to make these things at home. They are very, very dangerous, and WAY too easy. I took them to our family Fourth-of-July celebration, and my aunt described them as “just plain sin.” They’re not for the faint of heart, i.e., anyone without a good, strong sweet tooth and a stomach for rich desserts. Thanks for sharing this recipe–I’m afraid I’ll make them again, many times!
