Georgia Pralines | Southern Delight

Who can’t resist the southern delight… georgia pralines! I absolutely love pecans and am always looking for ways to spruce them up as sweet treats to bring to parties or to munch on at home. When I found this recipe, I knew I had to try it out! My husband and I were heading to his cousin’s house for a family barbecue and knew that his grandfather would love them so I figured it was as good a time as any to try it out! They were a hit by everyone, who all went back for seconds. In the future, I want to make them again and add a little bit of bourbon into the mix just to see how they would taste.

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans halves
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Equipment Needed:

  •  Baking sheet or shallow pan
  •  Medium saucepan
  •  Whisk
  • Baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Instructions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  • Spread chopped pecans on a baking dish or shallow pan and bake until fragrant, approximately 8-10 minutes.
  • Combine brown sugar, whipping cream, and butter in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, bring ingredients to a boil while stirring constantly and let boil for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat, add in powdered sugar and vanilla, and whisk until mixture is smooth. Stir toasted pecans into the saucepan mixture and allow to cool some.
  • Put spoonfuls of mixture onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow pralines to sit and harden for 30 minutes before serving.
