TBB: Pecan Praline Scheherazades (p 404)

I haven't been baking much lately... as I mentioned before everyone in my family is on less-sugar diet. So instead of baking almost everyday after work, I work out instead since I have no more excuses to say to my husband that I do not have enough time to exercise.   But that doesn't mean I am not eating sugar.. I'm pretty much a sugar addict, so it seems now I am eating more chocolates, candies in place. 

When I saw this candy recipe, I knew I had to make some to satisfy my sugar!

This is a rather simple recipe. I had some toasted walnuts so I used walnuts instead of pecans.

Making the Caramel... 

The caramel stuck to the grease foil. 
I think next time I'll just use parchment paper which works better.

Roll into rounds.. and left it to cool... and I went out shopping

After 1-1/2 hours later, I got home and found my caramel flattened to disk and partially melted... 

I had to re-roll into rounds and wrap with parchment paper and put in the fridge. 

I love caramel but what I don't like is they get stuck to my teeth! 
One of my tooth filling came off !  So I have to avoid eating them until I get my filling done at the dentist.  Sheezz..!

Oh no! And after everything you went through with that root canal. Your caramel looks good, though.
