"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."
"Yummmm! These were terrific. Like a previous poster, I found the texture to be great, nice and smooth instead of grainy like some recipes. I used about 6 heaping tablespoons of marshmallow cream instead of the marshmallows. May try splenda brown sugar blend to see how that turns out."
"I've tried lots of praline recipes and this one is definitely the best, hands down! It is smoother on the tonge and less crumbly than most."
"I love all Kittencal's great recipes. Though I haven't tried this one, I delight in pralines. When I make my own recipe, I'll post that later, I make them maple flavored with walnuts instead of pecans. My DSL looks for them every Christmas."
"This is the best praline recipe ever! Texture is smooth and creamy, not grainy, with just a hint of cinnamon. Easy and quick. A nice dessert when making Mexican food or a special treat for the holidays. Thanks, Kittencal, for posting!"
"Delicious, creamy pralines - my only disagreement with this recipe is that these are definitely not cookies - they are definitely creamy-style praline candy. But yummy!"
