Pumpkin Pralines


The first time I ever tasted Pumpkin Pralines was at Savannah Candy Kitchen in Savannah, Georgia. They were delicious!



  1. Mix brown sugar, granulated sugar, buttermilk, butter, pumpkin puree and salt in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover pan for 2 minutes to sweat down any sugar on side of pan. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan. Uncover and stir continuously to a temperature of 236 degrees F.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and pecans. Stir continuously for a few minutes until mixture thickens.
  3. Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper. If mixture thickens too much, add a few drops of water to thin.
  4. Let cool for 45 minutes before eating.
