Somebody posted recently, asking for a recipe for Southern-style
pralines.  I spent a week this summer in New Orleans, searching for
the best praline, and I found it at the Louisiana General Store's
Cooking School.  Below is the recipe they gave out:

1-1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 stick butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1-1/2 cups pecans

1) Combine all ingredients.

2) Bring to soft ball stage (238-240 degrees).

3) Remove from heat and stir until mixture cools and thickens.

4) Spoon out on buttered wax paper or aluminum foil.

They're also available by mail-order ($5/dozen + shipping) if you're
feeling lazy.  (Address:  The New Orleans School of Cooking and
