Pralines for Your Valentine!
Something a little different is in order for Valentine's Day this year! When was the last time you made pralines? How about never? Never done it. When was the last time you had one of these tasty morsels? Hmmm...can't remember? Then it is time...time to hit the kitchen to make something special.
I expected Praline recipes to be pretty basic...cream, sugar and pecans....not necessarily so. The Commander's Palace in New Orleans uses equal parts cream, sugar, pecans and a touch of orange zest while the recipe from Toni Tipton-Martin's cookbook, Jubilee, has a variety ingredients...sugar, brown sugar, molasses, cream, butter, pecans, and vanilla.
I know the pralines from both recipes are yummy! The recipe today is one that Toni shared with Southern Living.
You won't regret making these tasty morsels for your Valentine...or, just treat yourself!
