[IISIIY IDE Confection That Made New Orleans Famous Is A Tasty Bit BY BETTY OROCKF.lt Pi-alines arc as closely associated will) New Orleans as Baked scans are with Boston. Except that you might visit Boston ami forget to cat Bilked Beans. But you'd never come away from New Orleans without having sampled some of these famous confections. There's an enticingly large variety of them— coconut filled white mid pink wafers of a particular daintiness and rte- Jidousness. while almond wafers, creamy white pectin wafers, and the delicious brown su<;ar pecan- tilled wafers. It's this last variety thai we've been able to imitate in n wafer-like cooky that's almost a confection. For like the famous New Orleans wafers, they contain very little more than the brown sugar ami nuts. In fact the word "praline" really means "sugared' 1 in French—and originally was applied to sugared nuts- in no way related to (lie delicious Creole dainties of New Orleans. The word figures In very old French rook books, too. And one tradition is that in Prance some centuries ago Ihe Pralfoie was a species of drawee which derived its name from the Marectml cle Plessin-Pralin. who was very fond of almonds, and whose butler advised him one day to have them coalcrt with sugar to avoid indigestion. It's iiilerostinj to remember these things while you're enjoying the famous descendants of the Marechal's famous sugared almonds. These are pnrtiflnd waters —delightful tor toppinz off an afternoon tea or Kaffec Klatsch. They'll add ii new and interesting note to a tray of Clirislmns cookies. Best of all. they are easy to make. Here is the recipe— Praline Cookies 3 tbsp. buller 1 cup brown sugar 1 Pgg 1 Isp. vanilla 1 cup pecans, lightly toasted nml broken into large pieces 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour Melt butter and blend in the sugar. Add the well beaten egg. Blend in vanilla, nnts and flour. Drop only 1-2 tsp. of mixture for each cooky from tip of spoon onto n well greased, very heavy cooky sheet (or double pan). Drop them 4 or 5 Inches apart ns they spread greatly; in the baking. Bake 10 minutes In a moderate oven, 350 degrees F. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan, use vide spatula and. loosen around. Mince Meat Pic Recipe For Noted Restaurant Chef JtV jritS.
