Cajun Creme Pralines

A variation of the classic Cajun praline. A wonderful holiday treat.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup light Karo Syrup
  • dash of salt
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1/2 stick butter


Step 1

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, syrup, baking soda and salt. Cook stirring constantly until the mixture has dark lines or looks scorched - about 5-7 minutes on medium high. Add butter and pecans and cook 5 minutes longer on medium heat. Remove from heat and let the mixture stand about 3 minutes. Stir until the mixture changes to a light carmel color.

Step 2

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto buttered wax paper. Store in an airtight container.
