Made these at Christmas for my Christmas trays. Yummy!!! Made them as the recipe says,changed nothing,and will make them again without changing anything!!!They were wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe! Darlene Summers
Excellent recipe. I even did it the old fashioned way - with water to test - couldn't find my candy thermometer - and it still turned out fine. Thanks for posting.
These are PERFECT!!! I am a mexican food fan from birth (practically). If I could hug you I would! These are so easy, and taste FABULOUS!! Thank you for sharing with us!
I can't believe this recipe!!!! These taste just like the ones I used to get at Mama's Kitchen in New Orleans. I miss being home and these do it for me. They really take me back. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I can't wait to make another batch for Christmas and the rest of the Holidays.
Like ScrumptiousWY, I also live in a higher altitude location, and had the same results of dry crumblies. They were delicious dry crumblies none the less.
I made a few small tweaks,including using regular granulated sugar and light cream, but these came out wonderfully.
Made these last year for the Super Bowl (New Orleans themed party!) and they were fantastic. Very rich tasting and delicious. I made them exactly as the recipe was stated without changes. Thinking of whipping up a batch for Christmas this year!
Just made a double batch to sell tomorrow at a certified Farmer's Market. I am going to have to make another double batch for my customer's because these are mine. I did make the following substitutions: I use Cognac or Brandy. I also let it cook to 250 degrees to make sure it would hold up. These were excellent.
I doubled the recipe, ommited the bourbon, cracked each pecan half in half (just prefer smaller chunks), and got about 20. These were great! I was a bit nervous because I'd never made "candy" before, but even though I had no candy thermometer using the water method seems to have worked fine. I was worried they wouldn't be firm in time for dinner so I put the trays in the freezer- but nope, they were completely firm a minute later. Delish!
I love these! The bourbon really brings out the flavor. I was happy to use your recipe & bring back memories of home. It was also a nice introduction to the praline for my in-laws. Thanks!
