      My first attempt to make pralines... I made three batches and learned the importance of temperature! I don't know if my thermometer was off, or if it was a humidity thing, but I had to experiment to find the right temp to cook to. If you try them and they don't end up with the perfect melt-in-your-mouth consistency, try tweaking the temperature.

      I just made these and they were terrific! I did make a couple changes. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I used a cup of light cream. I also used 2 cups of light brown sugar and roasted my pecans in the oven for a few minutes. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. Very nice.
