THERE ARE MANY PRALINE RECIPES OUT THERE BUT I USE A CAJUN RECIPE THAT USES BOILING WATER INSTEAD OF MILK. I WAS TAUGHT THAT PRALINES MADE WITH MILK WERE CREOLE IN NATURE AND PRALINES MADE WITH WATER ARE CAJUN. BOTH KINDS ARE GOOD BUT MY PREFERENCE ARE THE ONES MADE WITH WATER. THIS RECIPE IS QUICK AND EASY AND PEOPLE WILL FIGHT YOU FOR MORE.

How to Make NEW ORLEANS PRALINES

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place sugar, water and butter in boiler over hot fire and beat. Boil until tests soft ball in cold water. (I use a small bowl with ice water to drop in to test for stage of ball) takes about 2-4 mins boiling of the sugar, water and butter to get to the soft ball stage. I ALSO USE A WOODEN SPOON. when you get to the soft ball stage remove from the fire.
  • 2Add pecans and vanilla. Beat until creamy with your wooden spoon . It will foam up when you add the pecans and vanilla. Beat until it begins to sugar on the side of the pan.
  • 3Once it begins to sugar on the side of the pan drop from spoon on wax paper and cool. WORK FAST IN THIS STAGE BECAUSE IT WILL SET UP ON YOU FAST. IF IT DOES JUST ADD A FEW DROPS OF HOT WATER TO THE MIXTURE AND DROP FASTER. Be careful this is really hot stuff. ENJOY!
