    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are the ultimate pralines, so buttery and just the right texture, this is one of my family's all-time favorite cookie. (note: since there is no baking time with these cookies... prep time is thermometer cooking time plus prep time)

      I am from south Louisiana and this is the real deal. I used marshmallow creme. The candy was melt in your mouth good.

      Delicious and easy. Mine didn't quite firm up properly, but it rained today and I didn't know until after making them that humidity makes candy soft. (I'm very new to candy-making.) Thanks for posting the recipe!

      I didn't taste those as I am on a very strict diet. But, I made them for my husband. And, he said that they were the best Pralines that he had ever tasted. He said that they had great texture. Even if I didn't taste them - I need to say that the scent of those things were rather tempting. They firmed up and got lovely color. I will surely be making those when I can eat some sweet.
