      Your dad's got it exactly right! I was searching Recipezaar before I posted my grandmother's praline recipe to make sure I didn't double post. This is the ONLY way to make pralines -- with buttermilk and white sugar. The smell of this candy boiling means Christmas to me and my family. One tip: try dropping them on parchment paper instead of wax paper or tinfoil. Less likely to stick.
