Yummy, then the head ache.

I made my world famous Christmas Pralines..
  • 2 cups brown sugar
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup white sugar
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup water
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 cup cream
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 3 cups pecans
    [/*:m:9468mhm0]
  • 1 tablespoon Cayenne pepper[/*:m:9468mhm0]
Boil everything except the pecans to about 238 degrees.
Then keep stirring and remove from burner.
Add the pecans and coat evenly.
Scoop out spoonfuls onto a buttered cookie sheet and let cool.
Then eat all of them and get a sugar rush!!! Yum!!!

They look good SS but they don't look authentic. Lookin at the recipe you used too many pecans. They should have way more candy/suger & less pecans. Yours look like "Pecan Clusters" A sweet & yummy cajun candy

There are also 2 types of pralines, chewy & sugar

The Cayenne isn't too spicy when added to that much sugar. I can't really explain the taste.. Make a batch and taste them.. You'll love them..

SS I will PM you my address so you can send them to me. Looks good.

Like JB said they make a sugar and chewy. Like the chewy myself. Here is link to a store that was in the Jaxs Brewery in New Orleans then moved out toward Slidell and they make really good Pralines.

These went with in minutes at work and the fishing shop. Not one complaint. It's just friggin candy. But, really put 1 teaspoon of cayenne in them and see what you think... I have orders for more now too...
thanks for the links. I can't see buying something that can be made so easily...

Sapo,

Quick question about the stirring instructions. Do you need to stir the mixture until it starts to thicken before adding the pecans???

thanx
Al

Yes. it will thicken as it cools... Main thing is to get the syrup to 238 degrees for a minute and then remove from burner and still and add pecans... I hope no one used a frying pan to make them.. Use a medium sauce pan since it will bubble up and could over flow.. I have made two batches already and will be making many more before the Big Day... Christmas...
