La.Pi.S – Crunchy


The theme for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sunday is CRUNCHY. For this theme, I enter the Hazelnut Pralines that I learned how to make for the first time when I made the Filbert Gateau for Daring Bakers. This recipe reminded me of the peanut pralines we used to buy in Baguio where I grew up. Now that I know how to make it, I realize how easy it is to make. I should have been making this a long time ago!

Making these praline is really simple. Get a couple of chopped nuts of your choice. It just so happened that the recipe called for hazelnuts so that’s what I used but you can use peanuts, walnuts, pecans, or whatever else you like.

In a skillet or heavy bottomed pan, place a cup of sugar over medium high heat and let it melt without burning. Just until it’s melted and caramel colored. Add the nuts, and working quickly, stir it into the syrup and pour the praline on a lightly buttered parchment paper or wax paper and spread out as evenly as you can. Let it cool until CRUNCHY.

The praline can be stored in a cool, dry container for several days if it lasts that long. Enjoy!

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.
