Gluten and Dairy Free Pralines... Oh My!
Five years ago when my husband and I got married, I decided to make pralines as our wedding favors. Since pralines are a traditional Louisiana confection, I thought they would be perfect, because we were moving to Louisiana immediately after our wedding. Although I can not have pralines because of the dairy, I make them every year for my husband on our anniversary. This year, however, for our 5th anniversary I was determined to make some that I could enjoy as well.
I tried this recipe from Allyson over at Manifest Vegan, and I was beyond pleasantly surprised with the results! My husband and I both thought they were superb! The texture and taste were spot on. My husband even said that he like these pralines better than their dairy laden counterparts! It is also important to note that the process of making these is also easier than making the traditional versions. If you are a praline lover, or just want to experiment with a new confection, I suggest you try these on for size. Just make sure the pecans you use are gluten free! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
