Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, without stirring, until syrup turns medium amber, 3 to 5 minutes. Immediately remove from heat and stir in pecans. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading in a thin layer. Let stand until praline is cool and brittle.
  3. Slide a metal spatula under the praline to loosen it; crack into small pieces. Place in a food processor and pulse until coarsely crushed or ground.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Store tightly covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
