I live in LA--Lower Alabama, in Mobile. We often look to our Southern LA--Louisiana--cousins for good cooking. The following recipe for pralines is courtesy of the New Orleans School of Cooking in the Jackson Brewery.

Combine all ingredients and bring to soft ball stage (238-240 degrees), stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir until mixture thickens, becomes creamy and cloudy, and pecans stay suspended in mixture. Spoon out on buttered waxed paper, aluminum foil or parchment paper (lightly butter paper). Note: To roast pecans, bake them on a sheet pan at 275 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until slightly browned and smell permeates.
