Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
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.
