      This is one of my dad's favorites so I had to give it a try. I followed your directions exactly and they turned out beautifully. Very sweet and creamy, not at all grainy. A wonderful crunch from the pecans. Dad says they are as good as his mom used to make. The highest of all compliments. Thank you Nurse Di for sharing your recipe.

      Followed every single direction...but added a tablespoon of JD at the end...I just couldn't help myself. They are perfect. Just stunning. The only thing is that they do set up really quickly, but you can reheat the mix for just a minute and they melt back so you can keep going. Perfect perfect perfect.

      Scrumptilicious! I'm from New Orleans so i know a good praline (pronounce prah-lean). Followed the instructions to a tee and they set up perfectly. Using toasted pecans (8 mins in a 350 oven) and a tablespoon of dark rum stirred in really made these slammin.
