The first time I ever went to visit my friend Alan's family, his mom had made pralines. She is from Louisiana and made the best pralines! One night, I got hungry for them and did a quick search and found this OH SO EASY recipe!
So simple and so delicious. I often make these in a big batch and put them into clear bag with nice ribbon and give them as a gift. People are always impressed. They are great on salads, desserts or just as a healthy snack.
Nana (My DH's mother) lives in GA where she gets the best pecans. Every year she makes these at Christmas and now I can't even think of going to GA for a visit without salivating about these silly little nuts! She got the recipe from her local paper and she credits a Mrs. Iris Harvey Peel for the original recipe. MMMMmmmMMMM These make perfect gifts because they keep a long long time in an airtight container.
Simple yet taste so good. My MIL makes these a lot. Think the original recipe, which has been altered, came out of Southern Living last year. You can add any dry flavoring and seasonings you would want on them I believe. Unsure of serving size, just had to put a number there. I'm just sticking numbers in spaces so zaar can publish it. Nothing has to be measured, you just roast how many you want and eat how many you dare! Prep time is soak time and oven preheating.
An amazing recipe. Simple technique which transforms pecans from 'Plain Jane' to 'Super Mysteriously Delicious'. People can never guess how/where you got the most amazing pecans ever. From Joy of Cooking.
A very old recipe which I might have found in a Junior League cookbook. Sweet with cinnamon and vanilla but not overpowering so you can still taste the pecans. They're very quick to make and nice to include in gift baskets. This is a simple candy recipe that's much more forgiving than most. Total cooking time is about 15 minutes.
Please don't be put off by the unusual combination of spices in this recipe...they work wonderfully well together. Last year I made this and divided it up into canning jars to give as Christmas gifts...a big hit! Credit for recipe goes to Canadian Living Magazine.
This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't tried it yet, but it's so quick and easy, has readily available ingredients, and looks so good, I might just make it before the day is out!
The recipe comes from the Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - a collection of traditional recipes from contemporary kosher kitchen. It was listed in the Passover section.
