- Be sure to line the baking pan with foil before starting, otherwise the candy-like topping may stick to the pan.
- Pralines are a rich candy made with sugar, cream, butter and nuts. This bar borrows its flavors from New Orleans pralines. Walnuts toast in the boiling sugar-butter mixture before topping a rich shortbread crust. Be sure to cut the bars small, because they’re very rich!
- Bars can be frozen up to 1 month.
