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.

Humidity affects a lot of candy making.
Also, unsalted BUTTER is always the preference. The salted butter only changes the saltiness of the recipe.
Really and truly, there’s no reason to buy salted butter.

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?

These really are easy an so good! I had previously tried making pralines using a recipe that called for a candy thermometer and ended up scorching them. No worries with this recipe, simply bring your brown sugar/butter/whipping cream mix to a boil for about a minute then remove and add your powdered sugar, vanilla and toasted pecans. My kids said they tasted just like the ones we get at River Street Treats when we’re in Myrtle Beach, S.C. This will be my go-to pralines recipe. Thanks!
