Tried and Tested New Orleans Pralines
September 21, 2012
Oh my goodness these are good and sweet, perfect with a cup of tea!
My first attempt was somewhat successful…the pralines taste divine but they ain’t real pretty! But once you’ve tasted one of these delicious pralines that really doesn’t matter.
Here’s a reminder of the recipe from The New Orleans School of Cooking
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup milk
6 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla
3. Spoon out on to baking paper with plenty of newspaper underneath to stop it going through and marking the work surface. This was the tricky part…you have to move fast to get the pralines on the baking paper before the sugar starts to get too thick…as you can see the ones at the back were not as pretty as those in the front row!
