Pralines (Praw-leens) are sweet pecan candies, made for Cajun and Creole children. I loved it in the Fall.


  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 stick butter (8 tbsp)
  • 1 (5 oz.) can can pet evaporated milk
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla


Step 1

Mix all ingredients together in a glass microwave bowl and microwave on HIGH for 7 minutes. Take out and stir well. Caution Hot!!

Step 2

Return to the microwave and cook for another 7 minutes on HIGH. Take out and stir until mixture thickens. If mixture does not thicken, return to microwave for another minute or two.

Step 3

Drop by spoonful onto buttered waxed or parchment paper. Cool completely before storing in a sealed container.
