YAY!! Success on the first try and normally I can't do candy. I have a new LED thermometer that worked a charm. I did drop some very large pralines, but they are better than chocolate! I agree with an earlier comment about the buttermilk. I think that made the difference. I did try pralines many years ago after buying some in LA, but they just weren't the same.

Thank you, once again, for a fabulous recipe.

The pralines look great, and the music is fantastic!

these sound YUM!
:)

the list of things i'm "expected to make" keeps getting longer and longer . . .

Wow, I love that picture.
Haven't I seen a picture of one of your daughters lately with the same kind of scarf on her head?

love the picture of chitter and chatter! If I get off silly old bedrest soon I'll be doing some maple caramels for everybody, missed the best weather for candy making already this December so no divinity this year but caramels and pralines don't seem to be as picky for dry air.

My boss, when I worked at the Uniform Company, used to bring me pralines from Louisiana every time he went. I enjoyed them that much. I'll definitely be making these and I thank you kindly for sharing the recipe with us. Sorry, little drool there. :) xxoo

Folks, I can vouch for these Pralines. They are wonderful and really do melt in your mouth!
Christmas traditions are wonderful!

Another thing I loved at Christmas was divinity with fresh pecans. The pecans have to be fresh!

I am thrilled you posted the recipe. I had some pralines when I was a little girl and honestly, I haven't tasted any like them since. And I think I know why! Buttermilk! I have been looking at New Orleans recipes and they have cream in them and they are just not the same.

It makes sense that my Tennessee relatives on the farm would have made them with buttermilk -- always something they had in abundance --and not cream, which was a luxury and if they had it, they probably sold it.

Plus yours has baking soda and white sugar instead of brown sugar.

I just know this long mystery is finally solved. Thank you Tipper! What would I do without your blog now that I have found it....

My mom made candies of all sorts every year, sometimes all year, not just for Christmas. I have never ventured into making brittle or pralines, but this recipe sounds so easy! Thanks I will let you know when I make it!

Brenda ~ TY for your visit. I love pralines ... can eat myself SICK on them.

Hope you will continue to follow me on the new blog.

Merry Christmas, TTFN ~ Marydon

Tipper,
These pralines look heavenly. I may try making these. They would be so good for Christmas. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

The pralines look delicious. I have a candy thermometer I bought at a yard sale a couple yrs ago, never used it but maybe I'll try these.

Tipper: That looks so, so good. I'm sure I would have a hard time not gobbling them up.

Oh do they ever look good! Yummy~
We just got a new Costco and I noticed that the shopping carts are two seaters. I sure could have used that when my kids were little too, even though I don't have twins. It would have made the world so much easier!

I have got to make me some of those! We are only a few miles from the "Pecan Capitol of the World"! (also Soybean capitol of the world, Goose capitol of the world... I think I will stick with pecans!) These sound great!

these sound good, Tipper, especially since you said they melt in your mouth and aren't chewy. Chewy, sticky candy and I don't get along.

Mmmm those look so good, Tipper- I haven't had any in years. My Grandmother used to make them- I may try them this year!

Tipper, those look so good. I have to admit that I'm a chicken about making anything that uses a candy thermometer...But I'm thinking I should give those a try!

When I lived in LuZeeAnna, I tried and tried to make the gooey kind of pray leen. Never did get it right but they did taste like heaven. My recipe called for brown sugar, I think. Anyway mine always came out looking just like yours.
Thank you for a new recipe to try.

That sounds so good. I'm going to try it....if I ever get this house cleaned up.

I would love to make these but I'm scared. Me and the "soft ball stage" have never been friends. I either end up with syrup or hockey pucks!

Mmm! I'm going to have to try these!

Got it copied down in my notebook. And you know this year I have plenty of pecans. Yippee! I am definitely trying these, since I've never eaten a praline before.

Those look wonderful, Tipper! I think I'll try them! I had little Banshees, too, LOL! They are 18 mos apart~I never looked forward to grocery shopping with them until they were both over five!

Thanks for the recipe!

I understand about taking little banchees to the grocery store. I had a couple of them. Boy ones! But they grew up too fast.

The recipe sounds good. They expect choc.covered peanut butter balls around here at Christmas time. I need to start making some up soon.

Thanks for the recipe. Have a great day.
Pam


Annie-the good thing about this recipe-they arent chewy they really do melt in your mouth.

WE love pralines.

But I have to ask, do you say "praw - leens" or "pray - leens"? It's an ongoing debate around these parts.

Hey Tipper,

My mil makes these every year at Christmas too! I think she uses this same recipe. They really are delish!

Well, it looks like Val and I will be making pralines for Christmas..........they look great Tipper, I will let you know how they go. Hope your day is a good one.
Shane

Thanks for sharing this wonderful sounding recipe! They look great and sound fairly easy to make. These would not last long around our house if I made them! blessings,Kathleen

Oh my, they look good - I'm not sure my teeth could manage them anymore but my kids would love them

I haven't heard the word "banchees" in a long time, but it is a wonderful description of children at certain times. How clever of Bilo to have carts for them.

Your pralines sound divine. My great-aunt used to make them at Christmas. You've got me thinking....maybe I should be paying more attention to the recipes in their magazines. Sounds like these are a success and you've perfected them by trial & error - always one of my favorite methods of cooking.
