These Pecan Walnut Pralines taste just like the ones they sell in the tourist areas of Charleston, Savannah, and other southern cities. They only take 15 minutes to make, and they are great gifts too!
1/2cupheavy whipping cream
1/2a bourbon madagascar vanilla beaninnards scraped out and added to mixture
2cupspecansor walnuts, whichever you like. I did half and half for this batch
Combine all the ingredients except the nuts into a heavy bottomed sauce pan and heat over medium high, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon, until it reaches 238F on an instant read thermometer.
Take the praline mixture off the stove, add the nuts, and stir the mixture for 60 seconds (this is very important, count to 60, or else your pralines will be glossy), then dollop it onto some parchment paper for them to set.
