Praline Charlottes


Yields: 8 dozen


  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cup pecans, finely ground
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp slat
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla. Stir until blended, and then add the baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Mix in finely ground pecans (measure after grinding). Pour in the eggs and stir. Then add the flour and mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly blended. Let the dough sit for a few minutes before rolling into walnut-sized balls and placing on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten the balls with a fork in a crisscross pattern. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
