Pralines is a southern nut candy that my husband has many memories around during the holidays. This is a candy that is quite popular in the south. I attempted to make it once early on in my marriage but my pralines came out runny. So when my mother-in-law was in town this past month she made a batch of pralines for us to nibble on. My lousy attempt at this recipe was that I failed to cook it long enough and the candy didn’t form well. But she makes it perfect every.time. Perhaps, years of practice? Or maybe its because she’s a southerner and I’m a westerner? Runs in the blood. Regardless, pralines are quite yummy. Quick and easy to make (unlike me –just be patient and cook to soft ball stage).
