Pralines and Cream Ice Cream Recipe

Caramelized pecans lace this ice cream with a candy crunch for a versatile flavor that is wonderful with fruit desserts, warm chocolate cake, or gingerbread. Pecan pralines are a classic candy in Louisiana, where they are eaten as crunchy or chewy patties.


  • 2 cups half-and-half or milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy (whipping) cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

PECAN PRALINE Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) pecans
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for greasing

Instructions / How to Make:

  1. Prepare a large bowl or pan of ice water, to be used as an ice bath.
  2. At the top of a double boiler, heat the half-and-half over simmering water until steaming.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl until blended, then whisk in the sugar. Whisk in some of the hot half-and-half and then pour the yolk mixture back into the top of the double boiler.
  4. Stir and cook over the simmering water until the mixture forms a custard and coats the back of the spoon, about 10 minutes.
  5. Immediately place the custard-filled pan in the prepared ice bath and stir the custard occasionally until it cools to room temperature. Transfer to a container and stir in the cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet that has sided with aluminum foil and greases it lightly.
  2. In a small, heavy saucepan, heat the honey, sugar, water, and cardamom over medium heat until it comes to a boil, then simmer 2 minutes.
  3. Mix in the nuts and stir to coat thoroughly. Turn out onto the foil-lined pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  4. Remove from the foil and toss with the butter. Let cool. Store in an airtight container until needed.
  5. Freeze the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is almost frozen, add three-fourths of the praline and churn until blended in about 15 seconds.
  6. Transfer to a container, cover, and freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Sprinkle the remaining praline over the ice cream at serving time.
