Default Question: Pralines?


Hi --

I think that "pralines" differ somewhat according to geography. My mom
adores the "Texas" style ones from her youth, which sound like the ones
you're describing: texture of maple sugar candy with pecans sprinkled
throughout.

I think the chewier ones come from further east.
