Maple-Walnut Pralines

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/maple_walnut_pralines.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 1994

Maple syrup gives new inspiration to this Louisiana classic.

About 2 dozen pralines | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Line two baking sheets with wax paper or aluminum foil. Combine maple syrup, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a heavy medium saucepan; heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Clip a candy thermometer to the pan and cook, without stirring, until the syrup reaches 250°F and is at hard-ball stage (when a bit of syrup dropped into ice water forms a hard ball). This will take 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in walnuts.
  2. Working quickly, drop the mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. (If the mixture hardens, return the pan to low heat and stir until smooth.) Let the pralines stand, uncovered, at room temperature until firm, about 30 minutes. Carefully lift the pralines from the wax paper or foil.
