Dr. Clothiers New Orleans Style Pralines
Line a rimmed cookie pan with a sheet of lightly buttered parchment paper.
Mix the brown sugar, water and butter in a good sized sauce pan. The pan needs to be large enough to allow the sauce to foam.
Bring to a boil over a medium heat. Stir for 3 or 4 minutes.
Add the pecans and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring constantly.
Drop tablespoon sized balls of mixture onto parchment paper. Or if you are using the pralines for Dr. Clothier's bread pudding spread the praline mix out evenly over the prepared cookie pan.
Cool to room temperature.
If you don't eat all the pralines right away be sure to try Dr. Clothier's praline bread pudding. It's scrumptious.
Pralines don't have a long shelf life. Wrap individually in wax paper and store in an air tight container. They'll keep for about 2 weeks.
Time to prepare: 45 minutes.
