Sunday is Pralines Day *

Happy Pralines Day ! 

If you grew up in the South you have probably had these . You may have a family recipe on how to make them . But today I am sharing a microwave  version of the classic :



unnamed (1)

3/4 C Buttermilk

2 C sugar ( 1 regular/1 brown sugar )

2 C  pecan halves

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 T    Butter

1 teaspoon baking soda


You need a 4 quart microwavable container – Mix together buttermilk,sugars,pecans,salt & butter. Microwave on High for a total of 12 minutes but stopping every 4 minutes to stir. Stir in baking soda -and cook on High  1 minutes more. Then you need to beat mixture until thick & creamy (2-3 minutes) Drop onto wax paper to cool & harden .

  • If they break up save them for topping ice cram


Looking for a new twist to regular pralines :
