EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Use dark brown sugar for a robust praline flavor. Pralines are a patty-shaped Louisiana confection made from pecans, sugar and cream.

To toast pecans, spread in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered at 350°F 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
