Wonderful! So glad Paula had this praline pecan recipe on line. Many more various versions but this was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is by far one of the easiest and most delicious desert recipes I've come across. I baked about 6 lbs of these for Mardi Gras this year and my family devoured them. Of all the deserts I made for that weekend, these pecans got the most praise. I will definitely continue making and sharing them with everyone. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was such an easy and very yummy recipe. I did it on parchment instead of using a cooking spray as a couple reviews said they did and I dont recommend it, puts the cooking time way off, I ended up taking it out of baking dish 1/2 way through , they started to cook up better, I did stir mine about 3 times. These are so simple and Yummy, going to make more for Christmas gifts, and more for me too ; item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon too. They were perfect. Took a little longer to roast/dry out but that's probably because my pan was too small. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Easy & Tasty! Great when you want pecan pie without the crust. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these this morning and took everyone's advice... I added a little cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla into the mixture before baking... baked on a parchment paper lined pan, sprayed with cooking spray... stirred them halfway through baking time... only baked for approx 18 mins... and sprinkled them with white sugar after they came out of the oven. They are perfect!!! Yummm! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Watch them carefully, but they're absolutely divine! I make these year after year, give them away as gifts, and bring them to holiday parties, and they never fail to disappear. There are always comments about how decadently delicious they are, so one word of advice: make LOTS of them! Enjoy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were delicious, and very easy! I stirred them more than once and only ended up baking them for about 22 minutes. I think they'd be fun to add more spices to change the flavor, or a little bit of maple flavoring just to add some new interest. yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE THIS RECIPE!! I have made these candied Pecans for Christmas gifts, and everyone just loves them. The recipe is easy enough to follow, and you don't need a candy thermometer, or know what "stage" to get the sugar up to, etc. Just as long as you keep an eye on them while they are in the oven, you are good to go. I also have added cinnamon and vanilla. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great Recipe. I too added a little vanilla in the mix and also sprinkled a little sugar and cinnamon when they first came out of the oven. I used a baking sheet with parchment paper - worked perfect - and just threw away the paper when they were done!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
oops wrong recipe item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are awesome!!! I'm all about simple with a lot of flavor and dimension. I set some out for the Thanksgiving and everyone raved over them. So for Christmas I made a gift bag for everyone to take home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has become one of our favorites to make during the Christmas season. One adjustment I made: we take it out before 20 minutes. Everyone's oven is different! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mix sugar and cream in bowl before adding pecans.(and any other flavors/seasonings) Add about 1/2c more pecans. Bake no more than 17-18 min for large pecans, less for smaller ones. Halfway thru, make sure to stir, try to spread in one layer. Sometimes I sprinkle a little white sugar on them when they come out...then toss again. Pour out onto another pan to cool...otherwise they keep cooking on hot pan. Easy treat for holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make them all the time I add vanilla to the mix and they taste just like the one's at the park's you can't go wrong with making them for gift's at the Holiday's. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty. Use raw pecans for best tasting results. After the first 10 minutes stir the pecans - then - be on the watch so they didn't burn. After another 5-6 minutes they were perfect. So total cooking time was 15 -16 minutes. At 20 minutes they burned. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were fabulous! I made them in my dorm's kitchen and everybody that tried them loved them! Even my roommate who doesn't like nuts normally. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the kind of recipe where you put it in the oven...and DON'T walk away. Keep your attention on what is in the oven, or you will have blackened pecans - definitely not good eats! I would also check them early, and often, because, as Paula says, they can go from perfect to burnt in a matter of seconds. This is true of all recipes that call for toasting or roasting nuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think this is the recipe I've been looking for, but I have a cookie sheet of black nuggets. I followed recipe to a tee, anyone have any suggestions? Adendum- OK I retried this recipe, stirring every 2 minutes. FABULOUS! I had a 12 year old boy ask me to give his mom the recipe. It is the recipe I have been looking for. item not reviewed by moderator and published

What a waste of pecans. It was so sweet, I had to throw it out! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were so easy to make for gifts and holiday munching. They came out of the oven a little wet but I kept stirring them on the pan to cool them off and they glazed right up and dried and were crunchy and coated perfectly! I added pumpkin pie spice to add some holiday zip. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recipe made it sound like they should come out of oven dry. Followed recipe evactly. Oven time (20 minutes) wasn't long enough to dry them. Added a couple of minutes, then pulled them out. Big mistake, still wet. Let them dry in pan thinking I could save them, wrong, had a burnt taste. What a waste of expensive pecans! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being a Southern Girl myself, I know that I can always count on Paula Dean's recipes. This one certainly did not let me down. They were wonderful and turned out perfect. I baked a double batch in a glass casserole dish at 350 for 10 min., stirred them, then turned them down to 325. I baked them another 5 min. and stirred again and then baked an additional 2 minutes. Removed them from the oven and stirred one more time. They turned out perfect. I am going to bake some more for gifts. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We ran the candied pecans through our old-timey nut chopper (Grandma Pate 1898 - 1989) and used them to top the whipped cream garnishing pumpkin pie slices. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I first made these in 2004 when it aired. At the time I was living in Georgia and my kids loved it. Someone how I lost the recipe. Last week my son (all grown up) wanted to make them but we could not find the recipe. We used a traditional Praline recipe that was good, but just not the same. I am SO glad I was able to find the recipe again...and so is my son!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the pecan pralines a few weeks ago and WOW! My husband was so impressed with them, as was I. I've never cooked anything like this (was intimidated by candied recipes) but WOW this was easy. We're going away for Christmas to a beach house and this will be the first item made when we arrive! The consistency, flavor, ease of recipe and availability of items was spectacular. Made me think of our vacation in Savannah years ago. Thanks, Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe. Toasting the pecans with the sugar brought out the nutty flavor of the nuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Once again Paula has helped me out. I am constantly looking to her for recipes and everyone loves them. These pralines are sooo good. My kids loved them as much as I did. Only lasted one day at my house. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good and very easy. Made this 3 times, with and without cinnamon. Line the pan with parchment paper ( sprayed with cooking spray also) and you will have no clean-up. Do not use a dark colored pan--burns very easy. Start checking after stirring at 10 minutes every couple minutes.. My cooking time was 16-18 minutes item not reviewed by moderator and published
but they were a hit with the family.. and seemed to get better with time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved em! Made these to top Paula's Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie last nite. Had to hurry up and get them on the pie before I ate them up by the handfuls! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've tried these for my family several times and they always enjoy them. Thanks Pauls for another great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We have made these over and over again at Christmas, for gifts, and ourselves. They are like the ones at the mall, that you smell and cant resist! These, are better though, not so hard, that you worry about busting a tooth. I added cinnamin to mine. We have to force ourselves to put them up and away! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked the first batch for 19 minutes, totally burned. The second and third batches that I made I cooked for 11 and 12 minutes and they were much better. Watch the time after 10 minutes has elapsed. But they do taste great when cooked correctly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these at Christmas time and gave them out to friends and family, fortunately I had some pecans from my parent?s pecan trees, nothing better than home grown pecans? I added some nutmeg and cinnamon to the brown sugar for more flavor and they were an absolute hit! Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy recipe. These are great right out of the oven, or days after. The longer they sit, the more praline-like they become. They won't last long. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Did not have heavy cream so I used half and half. Made it to top a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and not only did the pie disappear but because everyone started eating the pecans I almost did not have enough for the pie. I had to hide them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
When people ate them they thought I had worked harder than I had. I can not stand for any length of time to cook anymore so these were perfect. Everyone emptied the basket. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I left mine in the oven for about 18 minutes. That seemed to be too long because they left a burnt aftertaste. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I went to make these and my wife accidently got walnuts instead of pecans and it still turned out good. This receipe is good with pecans, walnuts, and macadaimin nuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Truly fantastic. So easy and well worth the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
"WOW", what could I say that no-one else has already said. I usually always add something extra to whatever I'm cooking and my husband hates that, but even though I see others have added cinnamon,vanilla or even salt this time I went strictly by the recipe and yes it is fantastic. The rating ratio is wrong. I say on a scale from 1-5 it is a 10! I also did another batch today but tried walnuts and got the same results...to die for! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I plan on making this along with my Christmas cookies this year and spreading the joy!! I think I will also try it with almonds. Thanks, Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are really good and easy to make. Great if you want just a little something sweet as a snack or on salads or even on ice cream. I made a batch of walnuts and a batch of pecans. Recipe is very easy to double. I added some vanilla and cinnamin to kick it up a little. I definately will be making these for the holidays. Spray your cookie sheets well cause they do make a mess. Had to soak them to get them clean but they are worth it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great tasting pecan pieces with just the right amount of sweetness. Simple and very inexpensive if you have your own pecan trees. We have 7 pecan trees in our yard. We usually sell whole pecans already shelled for about $5 a pound. This year our trees are completely empty. No pecans today item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you use a little less light brown sugar you will not miss it. Do not leave out 1/4 tsp of Vanilla Flavoring (not extract) and a sprinkling of Cinnamon. Stir after 6 minutes and the morsels are just toasted/ crystallized in 13 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Paula you rock! This recipe was so easy and produced a great tasting product. The pecan praline morsels remind me of the hot toasted nuts you can get at a theme park. My husband snacked all night on them. Next time I will add a pinch of cinnamon:P item not reviewed by moderator and published

These are the most simple, most delicious nuts ever. They were a big hit at Christmastime. Also a crowd favorite when served at a wedding shower instead of the usual mixed nuts. I have given this recipie out to numerous friends, all of whom loved them and passed the recipie on to others. Soon the pecans will become commonplace, but still a favorite with all that try them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last night, and they were very easy. However, I was looking more for a praline type treat, and these reminded me of the kind of candied pecan you'd find on top of a salad or something. With that said, though, they are a delicious snack to have on hand, and I'm sure I'll be making more of them in the future. I made a double recipe, and added about a teaspoon of vanilla, which added just the right flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
