Easter Pecan Pralines Recipe

September 1, 2011

Ingredients:
2 cup pecan halves
4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tblsp butter
2 cup heavy cream
How to make easter pecan pralines:
  • take a medium sized saucepan and butter it well.
  • pour the cream into it and place the saucepan over high heat.
  • the moment mixture begins to boil, add sugar to it and stir rapidly so that it dissolves completely.
  • later stir in more ingredients like vanilla and pecans and continue to cook over medium heat. do not forget to stir frequently.
  • soon the mixture would reach the soft-ball stage (236f on the candy thermometer).
  • then only you need to remove it from heat.
  • after removing from heat quickly beat it in the butter. the beating would cause the candy lose its glossy color and become cloudy.
  • now you should lay out a long strip of waxed paper on a work surface.
  • do so and moisten it with a damp towel.
  • you are supposed to pour good-sized spoonfuls of the hot praline mixture onto the waxed paper.
  • don’t forget to stir the mixture occasionally as you go along. this would help it keep well combined.
  • make sure that you remove the pralines from the paper before they get completely cooled otherwise they will be hard to remove.
  • the recipe should be stored in tightly sealed containers with layers of waxed paper in between.
