One Wonderful Dessert: Pecan Pralines Recipe

Here are wonderful pecan pralines! The recipe is easy and quick to make.

The pecan praline recipe is on page 34 of this amazing cookbook, Flavored with Love.

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mild
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 stick of butter
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
3 cups pecan halves, toasted slightly

Mix the sugar, salt, milk, and cream of tartar. Cook over low heat while stirring until the sugar dissolves. Wipe the crystals from the side of the pan as they form. Cook until a tiny spoonful forms a soft ball in a glass of water. (Or cook it to 236 degrees.) Allow the mixture to cool slightly and add the butter and vanilla flavor. Beat until creamy. Add the pecans. While the candy is soft, drop it by spoonfuls onto buttered waxed paper.

I know you'll find them as wonderful as I do!
