  1. Spread a sheet of waxed paper onto a flat working surface.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently. Slowly stream maple syrup into the saucepan while stirring with the butter; bring to a light simmer. Stir confectioners' sugar, cinnamon, and salt into syrup mixture with a whisk; cook and stir until the mixture is hot and the confectioners' sugar is completely dissolved into the liquid. Gently stir walnuts into the liquid just until coated and remove saucepan from heat. Let the mixture cool slightly.
  3. Drop walnut pieces by the spoonful onto the waxed paper and let each portion spread into a rounded mound; let cool completely until set, at least 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For firmer pralines, increase heating temperature to bring mixture to a soft boil until the temperature of the mixture reaches 235 degrees F (113 degrees C).

I followed the recipe exactly. My Dad will enjoy these as a snack or with ice cream.

The worst part was that it stuck to the waxed paper and was impossible to get off. It was also rather tasteless.

Fantastic! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these! This was so quick and simple to make and tastes soooo delicious. This is a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)
