Pecan Praline Scheherazades

Pecan Praline Scheherazades

If you never thought you
could make amazing
homemade caramels,
hold on to your hat
because you can
thanks to
Rose's recipe.

These are better than the 
sixty cents for one 
piece of 
Celtic Sea Salt Caramels
I might buy
at the neighborhood
box shipping shop,
when running errands.

these caramels
are amazing.
The lady who owns the business
told me how she used to make
homemade caramel for Christmas
with her grandmother
and these
were the closest ones to those
childhood memories.
Rose's are better!

With these few simple ingredients,
butter, creme fraiche,
Lyle's Golden Syrup, white and brown
sugar, salt and pecans
and dash of vanilla-
you, too, can stir up
an amazing batch of candy.

All it takes is a great deal
of patience with a 
watchful eye on the thermapen.
(Thanks Nicola!)

Fold in the toasted pecans
and let cool enough
to spoon onto a 
lined baking sheet.

I rolled some around apple slices
because I love
caramel apples.
So good!

The rest are chilling in the frig.

Simply amazing.
It never ceases to amaze me
when I can make something out of 
Rose's books
that I never thought I could.
