Praline Pecans


Note: One of the best part of the holiday season is the family and friends that visit and that you get to visit. When we have visitors I want them to feel comfortable. We don't have a separate guest room per se. We usually let our guests stay in Big Guy's room and all the kids have a slumber party in Little Guy's room using our Aerobed mattresses. One of my favorite things to do when we have guests arrive is to have a "welcome" tray or basket on the bed. I like personalizing the items for the likes of my friends. Favorite drinks or snacks. Favorite books or magazines. Even a surprise or two like a homemade snack. The praline pecans below are definitely a hit and something yummy for some of the males in our family who tend to get the munchies late at night!

Praline Pecans

Ingredients:
2 cups whole pecans
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
4 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Spread into a square baking pan, sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until coating is dry, and slightly crystallized, stirring once. Remove from oven to cool and stir once more. If not serving immediately, store in an airtight container.

I totally agree with you on the holidays and having guests. And I LOVE the basket thing. I try to do this sometimes, even if it's in the bathroom with toiletries they may have forgotten. But your basket sounds better!!!!!!
