I've made this several times with PERFECT results every time. Something I have learned over the years making candy...you are wasting your time (and ingredients)making candy when it's humid or raining...the candy will NOT set up. Also, I cook these to 240 because they continue to cook while you are stirring in the nuts. These are perfectly buttery, soft, and absolutely the right texture for pralines! Thanks for the recipe!



These are the best pralines I've tasted. They remind me of the pralines made by Lamme's Candies of Austin, Texas.



This recipe is scrupdillyishus!!! So easy too! Just follow the directions. I rate this five stars plus!!! P.S. don't take the final cooking over 242 degrees, it will get too hard.
