I love this recipe and have made it many times during the holidays.They are rich and creamy but a couple of small tweeks send them over the top.Toasting the pecans first really enhances their flavor.I usually bake them in a single layer on a baking tray at 300 degrees for 10- 13 minutes and cool.Finally the real kicker to make your praline's distinguished from the others is the addition of salt.Sprinkle a layer of kosher salt on your waxed paper before spooning out your pralines.There's just something about that sweet and salty combo of flavors that everyone loves.
