Spirited Louisiana Pralines - Dee Dee's
This is not my grandmothers recipe, not even close! I've combined some spices and added some spirits to come up with what I think is a divine creamy praline.
There's cayenne pepper in this recipe but I promise, you won't notice the heat from the pepper, the pepper will open the palate which will make the sugar component more pronounced.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Spirited Louisiana Pralines - Dee Dee's
- Working quickly, drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper or parchment paper. NOTE: If mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of cream; heat over medium heat until creamy and can be easily worked with.
Let pralines cool completely and become firm before moving. Store in airtight container.
