pecan praline cookies

This is one of those stupid simple recipes that I should hate, but just don’t. Because yum. Serious yum.


  • 35 graham crackers
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325°.

Place graham crackers on a baking sheet, covering the bottom. You can go a couple ways with this. You can break them into their smallest size before baking them, which gets messy and takes a little time. Or you can leave them large and cut them later, which gets messy. Either way, you’re making a mess. I prefer the pre-break method.

Bring sugar, butter and cream of tartar to a boil in a saucepan. Add the nuts. Pour mixture over the graham crackers.

Bake for 10 minutes. Let them sit for a few minutes after you take them out of the oven, then transfer them to wire racks to cool.
